Could be spinal issues. You should get it checked out. When certain vertebrae are squeezed up against each other it often causes radiating pain.

I don't remember it radiating down my leg, but it sounds logical that it would. My doctor just told me to take Aleve, which is an anti-inflammatory with naproxen in it, which helped.
