Your symptoms are pointing more towards Sciatica. It is a pain along the distribution of the sciatic nerve. It occurs in inflammation and irritation of the nerve.

Neurotropic drugs like Neurobion forte will help you, so does any neuronal supplements with Vitamin B12.

Physiotherapy may be required in some cases. Please try oral anti-inflammatory drugs like Tylenol for relief of pain and inflammation. This is available over the counter.

Hope this helps.
