In brief: Back & Neck

Issues are the cause of your problems.
The sciatica is due to your low back resulting in pain in the knee and legs. The neck is causing its own issues. I would suggest seeing a spine specialist that can evaluate both of these areas to address your issues.

In brief: See your Doctor

Sciatica can certainly cause pain in the legs and the knees and can be diagnosed and treated quite successfully.
Sciatica however does not cause pain in the neck. An evaluation by your doctor or a neurologist should be able to pinpoint your problem.

True sciatica will involve back pain that travels down the back/side of your leg, frequently down to your foot. Knee area pain can be part of this distribution but also can be a separate issue. Neck pain is definately an independent problem.

In brief: Investigate

U need to be investigated by your doctor for sciatica involving legs and neck.
