Lower back pain and severe pain in back of thighs

I have type 2 diabetes for a little over a year.  I have severe pain in the back of my upper thighs.  When I walk for a while, it gets worse and I have some numbness.  I have tingling in hands, fingers.  Could this be neuropathy so soon?
I thought neuropathy developed over a long period of time.  I take metaphormine 2 tabs twice a day.  My glucose is too high, still.  I also, was on Byetta.  I'm getting back on it.  I am hungry all the time.  I lost weight, now I've gained some of it back, because I don't feel like exercising, due to leg and back pain.  Does anybody have any answers or suggestions.  PLEASE REPLY.  Thank you

Neuropathy symptoms? Yes.
Sciatica symptoms? Yes?
Get an MRI of your low back to rule sciatica out.
