buttocks pain

I have had buttcochs pain for about two years. It is definitely worse when I sit down... cant hardly stand to travel in a car any more. The pain seems to be equal on both sides and is a numbing, tingling and annoying feeling. The pain also travels down the back of both my legs into my feet at times. I have tried cortosone injections, nerve blocks, chiropractor, physical therapy and accupuncture. nothing seems to work. Suggestions?

Re: buttocks pain

Hello. I have myofascial pain syndrome and your symptom sounded very much like mine this year. You can have trigger points or muscular knots in your gluteus minimus, one of the gluteal muscles that can cause pain in the buttock, hip, refer pain down the thighs and to the ankle. This is one of my areas as well, in the myotherapy world it is called, "pseudo sciatica". I would suggest making an appt with a myotherapist, trigger point specialist or massage therapist who knew about trigger points. Sounds like you are having pain referral down your legs to your ankles. Contact one of these specialist and tell them this and they can evaluate you for trigger points and referred pain.
In addition, I use a device called the jacknobber that you can manually press in on the tight spots yourself. You can look up the National Association of Myotherapist or Trigger POint Specialists. Good luck to you. jess
