Need further eval!: Fibroids are very common benign masses of uterus. They may cause feeling of pelvic heaviness or pressure symptoms on adjacent structures such as urinary frequency, stress incontinence, retention, & constipation. Few cases of sciatica (back pain going down the leg) caused by direct compression of the lumbosacral trunk by fibroids have been reported. Given severity of your pain, please see a doctor!
