In brief: Sciatica?

Unlikely to be vascular given symptoms.
Seems like you're describing a radicular pain pattern ie sciatica. Could be a pinched nerve in the spine. If recommend you see a physician to be worked up appropriately.

In brief: Pain

Superficial thrombophlebitis is still possible.
There are more possibilities not all vascular. Keep working with your doc to find the cause.

In brief: Possibilities

If you have a superficial venous thrombosis you can certainly have significant pain, but it is usually associated with redness, swelling, and warmth over the affected vein.
Burning pain often has a neurogenic origin. Crps (also called reflex sympathetic dystrophy) could be a possibillity but is typically associated with having had an injury of some kind (including surgery). See your doctor.
