Radiculopathy: It sounds like a nerve root in your lower back spine is "being pinched", also called "disc disease", it may also been spinal stenosis. Suggest to be evaluated before it gets worse. Of course other reasons also are possible, like a " mass compressing on a nerve".Please consult your doctor, don't treat yourself.

Sciatica: Pressure on the sciatic nerve is the most common cause of that symptomatology, but other causes and underlying problems need to be thoroughly evaluated by your doctor.
