Could be nerve pain: This could be nerve pain. There are a variety of nerves that run from the lower spine through the pelvis and down either leg. Any pressure or inflammation could cause one or more of them to be compressed- causing pain. Important to see a physician who can do a complete Physical exam and offer options for decreasing inflammation.
