  • Hi there and welcome!

    Have you seen a doctor? Have you had sciatic pain before? If it's pain down back of leg from back, I would guess it's sciatic pain.

    Is it intermittent or constant?
    Are there certain activities that make it worse (like sweeping, twisting, etc.)?

    I know lower back pain can be managed with some exercises to take inflammation off the area which will give you relief.

    Have you tried icing and/or anti-inflammatory?

    The more information, the more insight you'll see other's offer.
  • Hi,

    I do think the same as, my brother is suffering from this problem and he had a pain starts from lower back and goes down in legs and he just gets so hurt that I dont want to imagine him like this again, he planned to go for operation in next two three months.

    Lets see what will be the results, and I do advice you that you should consult with the doctor about your pain in the initial stage, it will be better for you.
