Has anyone experienced buttock pain? It has gone from occuring at night and interrupting my sleep, to now being aware of the "sensitiveity" all day. The pain is hard to describe but seems to be located in the same place in each buttock. It feels deep within the muscle and is an annoying pain that really hurts.

  • Sciatica! Google "Sciatica" and see if your symptoms correspond with what you've read, while you are waiting to make an appt. with your doctor.7 years ago I thought it was "too silly" to go to the doctor for a "butt pain."Then it got worse, and debilitating.My Dr. said I'd be "better" in 2 weeks. Gave me a print out of "exercises" to help which were later PROVEN to be the wrong treatment by specialists.Still grinds my gears thinking about that.The first TWO years were the worst with both legs/feet/back in agony. Loss of muscle and balance. No one believes me when I say I didn't sleep longer than two hours for almost a year. (mothers of "coliccy"newborns live with this reality)Please see your dr. A therapist showed me how to keep the pain from spreading down the leg. Wonderful!I firmly believe if you can interrupt the pain cycles, there's hope.Year seven and counting and I exercise (scaled way back from my high impact aerobic days) but I hurt hurt agony every day.If only my just graduated dr. had put me on the right pain meds, i firmly believe I wouldn't be where I am today. But pain took over, and no sleep, and years of no REAL help from the people (health care) who are supposed to (paid for, schooled to) help.I could NEVER relive those days again.(Now I have pain mgt. dr. who I love, and understands....but oh! how I wish it didn't take so long. It hurts the whole family, not just the sufferer. So callous and careless of my health care system).Good luck.
