Have a hot spot in the leg. Could this be posture related?

Yes, I have been getting these burst of hot spot on the inside of my right leg. It's on the inner of my right knee, but I don't feel the hot spot with my hand when I touch my knee. I don't feel pain on my knee. I did mess up my lower back (waist) when I stay at my daughters house and slept on the sofa about one month ago. I still have not recovered to 100%. If I move a certian way or step in a certain direction I get a zap or shock of pain on my lower back above buttocks. could this have something to do with this hot spot on leg. Have not seek medical help because of no medical insurance.

Thanks for posting your query.
From description low back pain seems to be mechanical in nature. Hot spot in knee could be posture related. Doing stretching exercises will be helpful.You can take antiinflammatory drug like ibuprofen to reduce inflammation.
Hope this will helps you. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
