Having pain from kidney to leg, painful to walk and sit. Is it a kidney issue?

I have a debilitating pain from my left kidney running down my leg...I ve been having some pain for a few days now, but today I was bending over working on a a/c unit (from standing position) and it just came on like a wave of hurt... it almost dropped me to my knees, had to push myself up w/ my arms from bending position.. now I can barely walk or sit... back spasm? kidney issue? what the heck!!...

kidney pain will not run down to your leg, but it may go up to groin. if the pain is radiating down your thigh and leg and aggravated by bending or movement it is a musculo skeletal pain. radiation of sudden shooting pain can be because of nerve compression at the spinal level or futher down, you can meet your phycian . he will be able to give you the diagnosis. workup to rule out kidney disease would include, urine routine, serum creatinine and an ultrasound of the kidneys.
