In brief: Pain and vasovagal

Pain so severe as to create a vasovagal episode (sweats, low blood pressure, passing out) is not normal.
Electric shocks in the back and legs often indicate nerve irritation. The root cause cannot be determined here, but i would have it investigated.

May I suggest you contact your PCP and if you don't get an adequate response then seek out a spine physiatrist or fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon
