For the past month weeks I have not been able

Patient

Q: For the past month weeks I have not been able to pick up heavy objects without lower back pain. I have also been having numb toes and tingling in my left leg. I do hair and work a second job where I am constantly on my feet for 12+ hours. Yesterday I had the most severe lower back pain I've had thus far. It felt as if someone were stabbing me in my lower back. I couldn't put my left leg on the ground when I walked because it would send a severe pain in my left lower back. Please help me to get an idea of what this could be. I've never been in so much pain in my life. Thank you, Insley.
