You need to go for proper diagnosis of your case.
Till then rest your legs and do not aggravate anything further.

Latest MRI with a visit to a good orthopedic facility is advised for you. Sometimes you are missed of other problems so a multi facility is advised as you may need neurology, rheumatology consultancy.
Take care!
