In brief: You

You maybe describing sciatica.
That is leg pain caused by a pinched sciatic nerve. Sciatica commonly presents with back, hip and leg pain and may be associated with numbness and tingling and weakness. Mri scan best shows a pinched nerve in the back. Treatment includes rest, anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, steroid injections and sometimes surgery. For more information see my health guide on lumbar disk herniations and sciatica. Good luck!
