Our expert says:
I think you should see an orthopedic specialist as this is very suggestive of a nerve being pinched in your lower back (you may have a slipped disc) and a MRI may be needed. I think you should go to your nearest academic hospital outpatients and ask for a referral to an orthopedic surgeon. It is not a given that they will operate but it may be necessary if the nerve is being compressed to such an extent that there is danger of permanent damage.
