What you described sound an awful lot like sciatica. My DH has had problems with this.

a malalignment of the hip joints, or lower spine can irritate the sciatic nerve that is the bundle that communicates all feeling from your foot and leg.
The muscles tense up around where that nerve is pinched, and that causes a lot of the pain, too. DH spent quite a bit of time getting muscle work done at the chiropractor. DH being overweight didn't help, either. He started losing weight and excercising, and his is feeling a lot better. He still has some pain, but it's not as bad as it was.
