Numbness in foot and pain in leg

I have been having numbness in my foot and pain in my leg for about 3 weeks now. The pain extends from my groin and hip area. My thigh feels sore, my calf has random pain as does my foot when it is not numb. The pain changes and it is not always in the same area. My foot when it is numb is either a feeling of pins and needles or being out in the cold too long like frost bite.
My doctor sent me for a x-ray saying it was probably a pinched nerve, but the x-ray came back normal. Now he wants me to go to physical therapy. He prescribed Napresen but it isn't helping.
Does any one have any ideas? The pain and numbness seems to be getting worse.
