You need a through evaluation with MRI of back -may be sciatica, and blood work and other imaging to insure that not a mass or autoimmune process. . Go to ER today especially since there is new onset blurred vision.

You may possess lumbosacral spondylosis with degenerative disc disease, or a lumbosacral stenosis. The acute change could be secondary to discogenic damage. An MRI will answer some of these concerns. A visit to a physiatrist might help rehabilitation efforts. Physical therapy is often very helpful.
