Back problem: Pain down the outside aspect of your leg to the lateral aspect of the foot is usually from a pinched nerve in your back. The L5-S1 nerve root or the S1-S2 nerve root may be involved. Rest non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications and time will usually resolve this but you should see a doctor to make sure that nothing more serious is causing this
