Our expert says:
If I had to guess, and this is a guess, it sounds like a pinched nerve, either lower back, or just below the hip. Sciatic nerve maybe? It's odd that it is on both sides - that suggests that it's at the back, because that's where the common origin of the nerves is, so either you've got the same problem left and right (which is unlikely) or it's in the back.
The best thing initially is probably to see a physio, and if they feel it warrants it, they can refer to a doctor or a chiropractor. But a physio should be able to check where in the back there might be an issue and then relieve it.
