Hi i have pain down my right leg , from my right buttocks down to my right calf, Sitting is the worst ,it feels like my hip bone wants to come out of my buttocks and my calf feels like i have just been on a long jog. stretching and walking seems to relieve the pain but only temporarily. This just started ,i am driving truck and 2 days out of the week i have ten to sixteen hour days mostly driving .I have just started this job two months ago,I am fifty now and most of my life has been in the logging industry,falling trees,working in the rigging,etc. Any ideas would be appreciated
