Pain in leg areas: Your pains seem to be possibly all related to a nerve impingement syndrome. that condition can cause all those symptoms. The sciatic nerve innervates your Leg as it exits out the spinal cord in your low back area and travels through the hip providing sensation all the way down to the Toes. Get an evaluation as this needs to be treated asap.
