Welcome to JustAnswer!
Thanks for your question. Please provide me the following information so that I can address your concern appropriately.
Is the pain located in lower right abdomen or lower right back? Do you have fever, nausea, bowel change? Any urinary symptom? Any change in pain intensity during bending/activities?

Thank you for the information.
I am sorry to hear about your symptoms.
Based on your description, you seem to have pain lower back going downwards to your leg. This is a typical pattern seen in pinched nerve. In most cases, people managed their symptoms with rest, heating pad, OTC pain meds, and physiotherapy. Other potential cause of lower backache is upper urinary tract infection, in that case presence of urinary symptom could be relevant. Sometimes, pain related to gastrointestinal problem may present with backache. In my personal opinion, it can be a case of pinched nerve, but if you can make it, then it is better to get a blood and urine test to rule out other potential causes that may present like this.
Please let me know if you have any other question.
