Quote from JulieDe:
Has anyone ever had it? My fam doc told me I had SI joint pain but a phys therapist thinks it's piriformus muscle. Anyone know about this pain? It stinks, lol.:dizzy:

Hi Julie, I have had this for a few years now ever since my surgery, I have had injections in this "lovely" pain in the butt muscle to relax it and it did help for only 2 days or so, The shots were not worth it. I been stretching that muscle by laying flat bringing my knees up, taking my right knee using my hands and bringing it up toward my left shoulder and vice versa stretching the piriformis. I am now taking Lyrica to reduce the nerve pain and it seems to help as long as I don't over do it. .
