Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip
This sounds like a neuropathy problem from one or more nerve roots in your lower spine being compressed.
Usually rest for a few days will improve this and ibuprofen can also help, but you need to let your doctor know since I would get an MRI scan of your lumbar spine to check for a ruptured disk problem.
Please let me know if you need any more information.
OK. but compressed disks don't press on nerve roots and don't cause the leg symptoms you have now. Since March you may have suffered a ruptured disk or two so I would repeat the MRI now.
If you need more discussion I'll be more than happy to continue but please consider rating my service to you.
Please let me know how it goes for you
