In brief: Many Possibilities

Depending on how long it's been going on, i would consider an evaluation by a pain/spine specialist.
Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis. Also could be a pinched nerve/herniated disc. Either way it might be good to figure it out and get appropriate treatment.

In brief: Consider Sciatica

The sciatic nerve runs down the buttocks, to the leg and terminates its branches in the feet.
Consult your primary care doctor for Sciatic nerve impingement. Start with aleve (naproxen) or advil if you do not have stomach or bleeding disorders.
