I've been having this pain in my lower back/buttock (right side).
It feels like a pinched nerve and the pain runs down the back of my leg making my foot feel like pins and needles.
What can it be?
What should i do?

Sounds like an irritation on a nerve root - an x/ray examination of your lower back is indicated. Depending upon the outcome, you could see a chiropractor who will advise on care or referral to another specialist.
