I have no idea what is wrong with me, I have not slept in 3 days....I am in between jobs with having medical insurance so I'm trying not to go to a doctor. 3 nights ago I began having this awful pain/ache in that mid-top part of your butt cheek, kind of around the 2 bones that are below your waist line (whatever they are called). This awful pain worsens when I lay down or sit. When I roll over on my stomach then my hip bones begin to have an extreme pain and ache. I do not think I lifted anything or hurt it. I do have mid-back pain during this, but not as bad as that part in the upper buttock around those 2 bones (which maybe the pelvis?)...It is so intense, I cry at night and cant even find a position to lay in :( I am not overweight, I am 25/female. I cant imagine why this wierd and awful ache is there....maybe pelvic related? arthritus?

I do have stress and anxiety, knots in the neck (at hairline on both sides of the spine) and two more between the shoulder blades and spine. (i do not think this is related, just other symptoms from stress).

  • I have similar symptons and am a 52/M overweight....I've been eating Ibprofen like candy. The pain is exaserpated after prolonged sitting like at work....I find myself stooped over like a 100 year old when I rise out of my chair and sleeping is never more than 30-45 minutes at a time.... the pain does seem to center near the "tailbone" down the buttocks....occassionally I have "cheek" throbbing...hopefully someone can tell us what this isI have no idea what is wrong with me, I have not slept in 3 days....I am in between jobs with having medical insurance so I'm trying not to go to a doctor. 3 nights ago I began having this awful pain/ache in that mid-top part of your butt cheek, kind of around the 2 bones that are below your waist line (whatever they are called).

  • It sounds like a ruptured or slipped disc compressing the sciatic nerve. This usually manifests with the buttock pain first, then the hip and if it worsens it usually runs down the leg and can cause numbness and tingling in the foot. If not, it could be your kidneys. An infection can cause severe pain like you are describing, but after several days it will begin to hurt on urination. You will need antibiotics for that. The other good candidate is human parvo virus. The cure for it is 10 days of 500 mg of ibuprophen taken 4 times daily. It is safe for that period of time, but no alcohol even beer. Good luck
