This is Dr. David

yes, this could be due to poor circulation or pinched nerves in your lower back causing pain in your waist down into your legs.

you should see your doctor and get some testing with a leg doppler ultrasound study to check for circulation problems

and see if you need an MRI scan of your lower back to check for pinched nerves and disks in your back.

make sure you take aleve with food in your stomach and plenty of water to help your kidneys.

regular walking exercise could help improve circulation and help you loose a bit of weight as well.

let me know if you have other questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
