    Sorry if this has been asked before but I've looked through a few of the posts and havent found an answer.

    I'm now starting my 3rd week off work owing to the fact I can only walk about 4-5 mtrs and that's with a stick. I'm currently waiting for a referral to the specialist as I have a prolapsed disc at L4/L5 giving me severe sciatica in my left buttock and calf.

    Well, I've now noticed this evening that my left ankle and foot are swollen quite a lot. I have found it increasingly difficult to walk; almost every day it gets worse.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Is it usual or should I get it seen to?

    many thanks

    I thinhk that with any swelling in the lower limbs it pays to get it checked, but as it is the same side as the problem it does point to maybe a cause there? Can you ring your gp and ask just to be safe?

    Yes I agree your GP should take a look at you. Any swelling around the lower limbs should always be checked out. Hope your foot and ankle feel better soon !

    Thanks both. Fortunately the swelling seemed to just disappear the following day, but if it happens again, I'll let the doctor know.

    Someone recommended me to use ice, does it really help?
