In brief: Possible disc troubl

You possibly have some lumbar/low back disc disease which could be impinging on a nerve root which causes pain to your leg(s).
At times, non-discogenic but severe low back pain can radiate to your buttocks and upper legs, but if symptoms down to knee or below, it is likely from a disc problem. Severe hip pain can cause low back and leg pain as well. Motrin/aleve may help. Consult doc. Good luck.
