What causes severe leg pain and lower back pain?

I m not sure what s going on with my leg.. I can barley walk on it at times it s really painful. It s always acing! I ve been to many doctors they have no idea what it is. It started in my lower back then went to my mid-back then went straight to down my leg. It s most painful when I m going to bed or waking up. I found that Motrin it the only thing that works. It doesn t get rid of all the pain, but most of it. I know it s not muscle pains, it s not a herniated disc, I have no clue what it is and now recently I m getting stomach pain and pooping out blood. I don t know what else to do.

Welcome to the magical world of health care,
I went through your query, and its hard for me to believe that no doctor have been able to help you. your symptoms are from the spine, with pain in leg, and that means involvement of nerve roots, what prompts you to say its not disc, have you been investigated, because if its true than its even worst, you may have secondaries of any primary cancer in your spine which can cause severe pain mainly at night and may radiate to the leg if pressure on nerves occur. Now have you got an MRI done. Who is the doctor you consulted.
I hope my advice would have been useful, in decision making regarding your treatment, still if you have any clarifications or doubts feel free to contact back.
