In brief: Sciatica

95% of people experience an episode of back pain and leg pain in their lifetime.
Most episodes only last a few days but may require bedrest doing that time. Fortunately he has medication. Since he has already seen a doctor, he should wait a few days and return to his doctor if symptoms persist.
