Hi,

Your symptoms are very suggestive of nerve compression in the lower back. Other causes include peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes, B12 deficiency or thyroid dysfunction.
I would suggest you to do some back and leg exercises and take OTC B complex supplements. If the symptoms recur then it is better to get a clinical evaluation done.

Thanks
