It hirts just to move.I have had sciatic pain in both legs before but nothing like this. This pain is 10 times worse then that pain. It makes me go down on my knees because its so bad.

Sounds like sciatic nerve pain. But it may be amplified by low potassium levels. You should get an electrolyte panel blood test to have your potassium levels checked and speak to your doctor about proper potassium pill dosage. If situation persists, get a scan done.
