The pain pills alone can do it.

it's possible, however this is serious and should be checked out asap.

Based on my own back problems with pain all over my lower body at times, it's possible that your back injury plus opiods could affect your ability to urinate. But to be safe, you might want to see your doctor asap because the urination problem may be due to a secondary back injury that's being masked by your pain killer and/or the sciatic pain. On the chance that it is a separate back injury, this is a potentially serious one and you should see your doctor asap.
