These all sound like symptoms you would get when you have a problem with the nerves in the lower back. It sounds like you have had surgery already and are left with these stmproms now. If they started after the surgery you might have a real problem because the surgery could have damaged the area in some way.

If you had surgery to try and fix these symptoms and it didn't it is not surprising because many times surgery on back pain or sciatica fails because it really doesn't deal with the cause.

My books and other material goes into why you get pressure on this area and therefore these sorts of symptoms so it really comes down to finding a really good therapist to help you deal with it.

Good luck

Have you checked what medications you took for treating your infections, to rule out that you are not suffering a long term adverse reaction?

Viral infections do not require antibiotics, but sometimes they are prescribed. If you took any antibiotic of the quinolone family like cipro, levaquin, avelox, floxin, or the like, you should check first of all whether you are having a delayed, long term sensitivity, so common.
