The way you explained your symptoms is very typical of Sciatica.
I happens when the soft disc in between the two spine bone get compressed while lifting something leading to it's backward protrusion where the nerve supplying your leg lies. This cause a severe radiating pain from back to buttock.
Usually with few days of complete bed rest it recovers on its own. However if it persisted for more than one week it's a red flag and needs a spine specialist consultation.
