In brief: Sounds like you may

Have a sciatica involving the L5 nerve or a nerve problem in the leg such as a peroneal one.
This needs to be checked out as you have neurologic issues in addition to the pain that may require further evaluation and more than just Aspirin for treatment. See your doctor now for further evaluation.
