Severe back pain radiating to the feet. Not able to stand. Treatment?

I am having severe back pain . It has been progressively worse over the last year and now I cannot stand up for longer than 30 seconds before the pain begins. Within 1 minute the pain has extended from my lower back all the way down both legs to my feet . I can not stand up longer than one minute. What could be the problem? and what should I do?

Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to HCM.
It seems you are quite disabled due to pain. Low back pain radiating to legs may be due to lumbar spine disc prolapse or spinal stenosis. I would suggest to consult a spine specialist and you may need to get Xrays and MRI of the spine. Thanks.
