Thanks for the query. Backache may be due to muscle dysfunction or spinal disc degeneration. Sheurmann kyphosis is increased thoracic kyphosis however it needs to be differentiated from postural kyphosis. I think you may have postural. If possible please upload your xray to tell you more about the spine. Leg pain happens when the nerves are getting pressed. If this problem is persistent and going on for few weeks then I would suggest to get examined by a spine specialist and you may need MRI spine also.
