Thank you for posting your query.
Your symptoms could be due to a pinched nerve in the lumbar region (lower back), which can cause pain, numbness and shooting pain in leg and thigh. This can be confirmed by doing an MRI scan of the lumbar spine region.
However, buzzing sound in the ear and light-headedness are not related to this problem. Please consult an ENT doctor also for evaluation.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
