Feeling a pull in the lower back, pain in the right leg, fatigue. On pain medication. Need help?

three days ago I felt a pull in my lower right back which has since subsided.however I am unable to stand due to severe pain in my right leg.The pain is definately muscular and is relieved only when leg is bent. Even straightening while lying down causes severe pain in right leg and hip area. I am unable to tolerate the pain.I have been seeking help from my physician for an entire year now concerning overall muscular pain and fatigue upon waking. I have been prescribed pain medication but this does not ease the pain in my right leg. I am at this point unable to stand or walk for any period of time without seeking relief from this unbearable pain

Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for the query. The way you are describing the pain, I think this could be due to disc herniation with pinching of the nerve in the back. Have you investigated? have you done MRI of the spine. it will rule out if there is any nerve related problem. This been a long time you are suffering and i think you need to focus on diagnosing the problem rather than seeking temporary relief.Thanks.
