Can sciatica be cured?

Hi! I am a 23 old. (Male) Recently I developed a back pain and I always hear a ticking sound from my back.Even I am having a slight pain which is going down my left leg. I am going to meet a neurosurgeon next week. I am so worried About this right now and I am scared if this is sciatica. If that is the case can it be cured permanently, Or do I have to suffer my entire life?

Thanks a lot for you kind attention.

I am 79 and developed sciatica a few years ago.  Although  age is not necessarily a reason you get it, I have found relief by getting a Kenalog Epidural Steroidal injection ever few months or as needed.  It stops the pain for a while.  The other alternative for me was taking Neproxyn...aka Advil but it's not advisable to depend on it because of over use and negative side effects.  Check with an orhopaedic surgeon.
