Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms are highly suggestive of lumbar disc problem with radiating pain to the leg. You need to be investigated for he same and started on physiotherapy. You should see orthopaedician for the same.
However, stone disease in minority of patients may cause similar symptoms. You need to rule out stone disease with urine routine examination and ultrasound prior to seeing orthopaedician.

Hope I answered your query.
