Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Welcome to HCM.
This is Dr. Swarnava Dattagupta answering your query.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
Throbbing pain with radiation which you are having is probably unrelated with your stomach ache. It is a neurological pain with a probable lumbar pathology. It might be spondylosis, a degenerative disease or disc problems. A muscle cramp though unlikely should be ruled out.
Anyways, I would suggest you the following-

If the pain is excessive, a diclofenac and a methylcobalamin injection will give you temporary relief.
Continue mecobalamin-pregabalin and a painkiller orally after that.
Avoid forward bending, heavy weight lifting.
Physiotherapy like spinal isometric exercise might be started after some pain relief.
Local dry heat compression.
An xray and MRI of lumbosacral spine.
Blood test for blood sugar.

You can consult your treating or family doctor about the above.
Consult an orthopedician or get back to me with the reports.

Hope this was useful.
Regards.
