In brief: Yes

Sciatica refers to the development of symptoms such as pain or numbness in the leg or foot stemming from the irritation of a nerve in the back.
It is one possible cause of the symptoms you are describing. The "over the counter" blood glucose machines are in general reasonably accurate, if there is any question you could also have your blood sugar checked at your doctors office.
