Sudden pain in left leg

My mom experienced a sudden pain in her left leg since yesterday when she woke up after having a nap during evening hours. Later she was unable to walk as she have been earlier and is experiencing tremendous pain in her leg. She was unable to sleep at night because of it. Moreover, she is unable to understand where the pain is exactly but feels its in joints. Kindly help us to understand what is it exactly and suggest ways to get rid of it. Thanks!

If she has lifted any heavy weight or worked with forward bending then she could be having sciatica. In any case she needs to be examined clinically for pinpointing cause of her symptoms.
