Hei You all

Due to my job, i have to sit a lot behind computers and driving in my car. About 1 month ago after a long period of sitting, i realized there is a pain in my left buttock. A few days more and it became worse. I changed my habits, i sit less, although i still have to sit at least 1-3 hours a day, i walk to the shop (earlier i drove there). For a while i thought it is going away. Now i realize, it isn't enough, it isn't going away.
The pain itselt is just few centimeters from the tailbone to the left and below. I have read many posts, forums, medical articles, i haven't found articles which describe my problem accurately.
I can pinpoint the pain. In the mornings, there no pain, it starts coming after half a day or so. When i sit more, the pain starts coming earlier. After an hour behind the wheel or computer, when getting up from a sitting position i have problems streching my back. Then, if i go for a walk for about half an hour, it goes away, but soon starts coming back. I get relief when lying on my stomach or on one side.

Has anyone had similar problems and how do you treat this kind of a problem? Could it be related to spine, disks or is it a strain muscle in my buttocks?
