I'll try to be brief and descriptive - i worked in a car factory which required my getting in and out of cars constantly. The car seats pulled on my left butt cheek upon entering and exiting. It was hardly noticeable at first but escalated into excruciating pain (8 or 9 on a pain scale). I worked there for over a year, hardly able to sit at times. I have not been working there for two years now, and my butt still hurts!! Standing, walking, running, exercising, or any other activity does not hurt in the least - it is only painful when I sit. The pain is as though I am sitting on a golf ball. It is located at/on/around the ball joint. If I had to render a guess, I would say the muscle (maybe a tendon) has been ripped from the bone it was connected to. I have tried doing squats with weights, stretching, and most recently started taking glucosamine. Nothing helps. I would rate the pain as a 3 or 4 - not horrible but quite uncomfortable and even slightly embarrassing at times (dinner with friends, movies, etc) when I keep shuffling in my seat. Thanks for reading!
