Lower Back nerve sensation/pain

Hello All,
I have something I hope you can shed some light on for me.
Seven or eight years ago I started getting a slight pain or nerve sensation in my lower back when I got up and started walking after sitting for a while. It eased off quickly so I ignored it, it wasn’t bad and I would move on thru it.
Well, it’s progressively gotten worse over the years. Last years it got to where it was happening several times a week and it is increasing.
Now this pain is not a stump your toe pain. It’s between a pain and a nerve like sensation that radiates from my lower back. In the L5 and S1 area. It starts gradual and increases . It lasts from 45 sec. to a minute before it eases off. I stop and lean on something until it stops.
Recently, Over the pass 2 to 3 months it’s gotten a lot worse. When the back pain starts to ease off I am now getting a surge of pain in the back of my head. That will ease off after about 5 minutes and leave a dull headache.
This morning it occurred twice and now after the surge of pain in the head eases of I notice that the bottom of my feet are numb.
I’ve had physical therapy, Chiropractic care, two MRI’s and two sterior shots along with many doctor visits and here I am.
I don’t mind telling you that I’m getting concerned.
Any suggestions?
