In brief: Be see

It sounds like possibly a sciatica, which is an irritation of a nerve in the back causing symptoms down the leg.
Many cases can be treated conservatively, but when the leg starts going. Numb , you should be seen, just to make sure it is not going to cause you long term harm. Thanks.
