Is your right leg normally smaller or is this a recent thing?
Does the pain occur only with walking?
has been that way for past year/ hurts when walkin sitting or sleeping
Thanks for replying.
It appears you have nerve damage from your lower back. This can cause muscle wasting - getting smaller - . You need to get an MRI and a neurologist consult without delay. Nerve damage that goes on longer can be irrepairable.
You could have a herniated disc or something that is compressing on the spine/nerves causing the pain and muscle wasting.

L5 region you mentioned a neurosurgeon . any additional. info need help now.
You need to get a MRI done. Go to your primary care provider to have this done. They can refer you to the neurosurgeon if necessary. The neurosurgeon will not take self referrals and will always want a MRI to look at.
