I have a 2 inch by 2 inch knot at the base of my spine. The pain is so bad that I am unable to walk. It is also causing sharp pain throughout my leg.

It sounds like you have an infected pilonidal cyst.
You would benefit by being referred to a surgeon for an incision and drainage then eventual definitive excision.
