I : I am not sure what is causing this. But if you have back pain, pain radiating down your legs, progressive leg weakness and problems with your bowels and bladder this could be consistent with a cauda equina syndrome (a nerve in the lower spine gets compressed). If this is acute, please get seen at the er right away. If this has been there for a long time, please pick up the phone and call your doctor now. Please do not put off getting medical care. God bless.
