In brief: A gap in the wall of

your abdomen where the femoral artery and vein emerge and then enter the leg that is enlarging is a femoral hernia.
They are not common but can cause the symptoms you describe. Low back pain can be muscular, spine or hip related or do to pelvic organ problems. A femoral hernia usually has a tender spot in the front of the hip... especially when coughing or bearing down. Sorry I can't help more.

In brief: Not Femoral Hernia

Pain in the distribution as you suggested describes the pattern of the nerve that travels in the buttock called the sciatic nerve.
The sciatic nerve is not the cause of the pain source, it is the result of an irritated nerve typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist
