Is it very serious? I am having pain all the time in the back region, then to the thigh and calf severe pain,  What should I do to heal the problem, Is there any permanent solution?

Should I just get bed rest along with the med provided?  I am very concerned about the problem as I am only 25 yrs old male and haven't even married yet.
