Many options: This could be anything from a herniated disc to sciatic pain or any other nerve compression. A full exam by your physician, and imaging if they so choose, would be helpful for you to reach a true diagnosis.

Most likely a disc: Problem in the back(lumber area), those some of the symptoms of the disc in that area.
