  • Could be sciatia but since it's on both front and back it may just be pressure pushing on a root nerve. Not sure what exercises you are able to do but that's what I had to do for mine. You can google exercises for sciatia and see which ones you can do. Massages help too.

  • Could be your SI joint too. I had that problem and had to have physical therapy. Very painful!

  • that for sure is sciatica. the sciatic nerve is the biggest nerve in your body extending from your back to all the way down your leg
