L4 & Ball of Foot Pain

Has any ever experience ball of foot pain from and L4 herniation? This is something new that just started recently. It stated in the ball of my foot, my back aches, my butt hurts and my leg, but the leg hurts mostly behind the knee area. I can't site, or stand without this pain. Driving is no longer an option because of the pain. If I lay down for 5 or more hours after the pain starts the pain will go away. But If i get up,it comes right back. I've had sciatic pain before but it felt different than this. It shot electric type pain to my big toe. This is CONSTANT once it starts.
