Your shooting pain has nothing to do with femur fracture. You seem to have a disc prolapse which hitches on your leg nerves when you lift heavy weights.
But if your hip hurts, you need to consult an Orthopaedician as it could be an early sign of avascular necrosis (decreased blood supply to the hip). However if it were a hairline fracture, chances of avascular necrosis are less likely.
You need to avoid lifting heavy weights and do back strengthening exercises.

Dear,please see an orthopedic surgeon.A hair line crack in femur before 4 years can not lead to pain in back today.There has to some other reason like muscular sprain,some nerve compression or something else.Please get your self examined and take treatment accordingly.During delivery undiagnosed element can lead to more pain.
