This is Dr. David
most likely it is a pinched nerve in your lower back causing back pain and pain in your toe and calf and thigh
how old are you?
you should consult with a neurologist to get a full neurological exam
and ask if an MRI scan of your lower back to check for pinched nerves will help find the source of your pain.
do you have a GP doctor who can refer you to a neurologist
or order a back MRI scan?
