How can severe pain in the buttocks and behind the legs be treated?

I am having extreme pain in my buttocks and in the back of my legs. I cannot walk in an upright position. On Tuesday, I went to a Med Express(I just arrived in Myrtle Beach for 3 months). The Dr. could see that my back was spasming. I am on Flexeril and painkillers. The Dr. recommended a massage. I did that this afternoon. Very little improvement. What next?
