Hello I'm Dr Chip
Any back pain with this?
This is obviously a pinched nerve problem and while it could be true sciatica--a pinch of the sciatic nerve itself--usually it's more of a disk problem in the low back with a nerve root compression
Right now it doesn't sound too serious but you need to see your doctor for an exam and an MRI of the lumbar spine to check that out
It definitely doesn't sound like a surgical problem but you may need some physical therapy to relieve the symptoms
Please let me know if you need any more information
