It sounds from here without examining you that you might have a lumbar disc problem at L5/S1 if you feel pain down the posterior thigh to your knees, have more pain with prolonged sitting or coughing,etc. If you have a friend or significant other around you can try the straight leg raise. Lay on you back on a hard surface ( the floor) and keeping your legs straight, have him raise them up individually. Do you get lower back pain? Let me know. The doc could be just your regular GP. Or a neurologist. Dr Frank
