Lately i have found that the back of my leg between my butt and my knee hurts a lot especially when i go to sit or when i straighten my leg if lying down . This pain seems very deep within and massage does not even touch it. It seem as if it is my bone is what hurts..if that even happens. What do you think may be my problem and what do you think i should do thank you:)

  • I'm just another internet researching hypochondriac, but I'd see a doctor. I'd be afraid it was a deep vein thrombosis.

  • My husband has pain in the back of his legs that is severe, and it moves from the calves to the knees to the hamstrings to the butt and then back to the calves or knees or hamstrings. The pain actually moves around. But it is severe. It responds to aspirin, which lessens the pain but does not take it away completely. This has been going on for a few days. Any ideas? The doctor says it's not an artery blockage, due to the fact it is moving pain.

  • Both of those sound like textbook cases of sciatica - the nerve that runs through the spine down the back of the legs to the feet. It is not uncommon and it can cause severe radiating and shifting pain. Good luck!

  • If it were up to me, I would see a good highly recomended Chriopractor. Look for one who doesn't need to advertise on T.V and internet and ask around for the safe ones. It is probably between lumbar 3 and lumbar 5 where the sciatic nerve rests.
