Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
It looks to me that you may be having a disc herniation with nerve compression which is causing pain in the back of leg. So I would suggest you to show it to orthopaedic surgeon and you may need MRI of the spine. If there is disc herniation then you would need pregabalin and Methylcobal tablet. Also avoid weight lifting and forward bending.
