Neurologist: The current symptom appears to center around the leg which is painful,weak and muscle twitching is observed. There is also some buttock discomfort. I suspect a disc problem in the lower spine. A neurologist or orthopedic specialist would be best qualified to evaluate you and order appropriate tests.
