A:   Thank you for writing to us.

You say that you have ITBS and sciatica. I think that you may have vitamin deficiency related nerve supply deficiency. Taking B12 and folate will help you reduce the tingling sensation.

Sciatica or the severe pain in the legs and back can cause a tingling sensation. This occurs because of the compression of the nerve when it is leaving the spine. Here are the few things you can try for Sciatica:
Stretch the legs
Use Paracetamol to reduce the swelling
Heat the area locally to reduce the swelling and pain

I also recommend that you take an injection of B12 and folic acid to help you. Hope this works for you. All the best.
