Please see your doctor about this. You could be having a bout of sciatica, and need to be checked to be sure you have normal reflexes in your leg and foot. Your doctor may want to do some studies of your back also. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may help, or Celebrex (less cardiovascular risk than some other nsaids). Herbal willow bark extract may help also -- one study found it equivalent to a cox-2 inhibitor.
