MRI : It sounds like it is probably a variant of a "sciatica" which is an irritation of a nerve in the back causing symptoms down the leg (although there are other possibilities as well). It is not so much you initially need to see a spine specialist, but rather probably need an MRI to establish the diagnosis, which could potentially be ordered through your primary care doctor.
