You should: See a physician. You may have a radiculopathy, a pinched nerve originating in your back, most commonly from disc issues or arthritis, if your leg is getting weak and heavy, this can represent progression, so see a physician. You have one of the best back pain doctors in the states right near you in brookline, a dr rainville. See if you can see him and he can help a great deal!
