Brief Answer:
Pinched nerve.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms you describe point towards nerve involvement and more exactly, pinched nerve.

Conditions that may cause it include herniated disc disease, spondylosis of your lumbosacral spine, compression of the nerve during its way ( meralgia paresthetica).

It is necessary to get evaluated medically and by imaging (x-rays, MRI of the lumbosacral spine) in order to get a correct diagnosis.

Discuss with your primary care Doctor about these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
