Different causes: I'm not exactly understanding this but it sounds as if you definitely get pain in the leg while walking. Does it resolve when you rest? Does it get really bad when you run ; even worse if on a hard surface? Pain in the leg upon exercise can be due to circulatory issues to the limb, neurological problems, or orthopedic issues such as shin splints or compartment syndrome. What does your doc say?

Pinched Nerve: Sounds like you have a pinched nerve in your back. I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you. There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether.
