Sciatic nerve pain connected to TIAs?

My father has had sciatic nerve pain off & on for several years. Sometimes he actually goes into shock due to the pain.  He also has minor TIAs on occasion, but no blockage is ever detected.  Is it possible that there is a connection between the two?

Sciatic nerve pain, is pain in the back of the thigh  and buttocks secondary to irritation of the major nerve in each of the legs. TIA or transient ischemic attacks are disturbance in vision, weakness in the arm or leg, disturbance in speech caused by interruption in the blood flow to the brain. They are not likely related.

TIAs are a worrisome occurence because they are usually a warning sign. They require an extensive evaluation of tests like ultrasound and CT scan to look at the heart and all of the blood vessels leading to the brain because any one of them can cause the problem
