Lowerback pain associated with pain in leg is often caused by "Radiculopathy" or "Radicular Pain". The cause of pain is either disc herniation, disc bulge or irritation of nerve at spinal canal. You should consult a neurologist, neurosurgeon, PMR physician or pain specialist. Definitive diagnosis can be made after MRI and EMG studies.
