I am having lower back pain and leg pain from past 2 yrs. It started from a niggle in the right hand side lower back at a particular point. Then it started paining in the right leg in thighs and calf. Now pain is more when I sit for long and also while climbing stairs. Now the pain is complete lower back and both the legs. I have tried a lot of doctors but nobody has been able to diagnose it properly. Please advise.
