In brief: Possible

More common in terms of the combination of back & leg pain in terms of a sciatica is nerve involvement with 20% experiencing some neurologic symptoms like numbess, tingling or parathesias &/or weakness.
It is unusual to c/o coldness which is unlikely to be vascular issue at your age but could be in an older person wih the vascular issue causing back & leg pain or 2 different problems coexisting.

In brief: Nerve dysfunction

Sciatica may cause changes in sensation (feeling) all the way down to the foot on the affected side.
