I too have some sciatica pain on the outside of my right upper thigh, which sometimes shoots down into my calf. I take Motrin which helps somewhat. I also walk an awful lot, almost every day for an hour and a half (sometimes more). Maybe I'm overdoing it, but I do it for my bones. I don't take any prescription meds for that, just calcium citrate, magnesium and Vit d3. And omega 3.
