Can piriformis muscle syndrome cause sciatica type symptoms (pain and tingling in legs). Can you suggest anything that may help relieve it?

In brief: Suggestions

Yes, if sciatic is caught by buttock muscles, pain can simulate a pinched nerve from the back, BUT you describe issues in "legs", and the bilaterality causes some concern regarding lumbar stenosis vrs peripheral neuropathy.
First, get diagnosis confirmed, then if appropriate, try physical therapy or osteopathy.
