Brief Answer:
May be due to a pinched nerve.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
If the pain is of a shooting nature, it is likely to be due to pinched nerves from your lumbar spine . Exercises are not advisable when you have the pain, you may get relief from physical therapy. Gabapentin and simple analgesics would be helpful for relief of pain. Also it would be good to check and make sure that your blood vitamin D level is good.

Do get back to me if you have further queries.
