Yes, I think a visit to the vet is in order.  Something tells me there is a hip problem going on.  Over the years I've noticed that dogs with hip issues find it far more difficult to go up a set of stairs rather than down.  Until you can get to a vet, help him out on the jumping and stairs - go ahead and pick him up.  You don't want to aggravate whatever injury he may have by encouraging those activities.  Hope his problem is a minor, short-lived one.  :-)
