Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me. Iv been to two doctors who shake their heads and say they are baffled when I tell them my symptoms. The last doctor has booked me in for a brain and back scan. I started with this one year ago, but in the last 6 weeks Iv been having these episodes about once a week. I am feeling fine, then suddenly I get a tingling in my buttocks,feeling as though my bottom is on fire, followed quickly by an ache in both buttocks, which spreads to both my legs. My legs feel weak and like jelly. Iv tried walking it off, but the pain in my bottom just wont go, until I sit down, then I usually feel fine again after about 5 minutes. I have had lower back pain for a long time, but it isnt unbearable, just a nuisance. I dont feel backache though when I get the pain in my bottom and legs. This feeling only comes on when I am walking or standing, it hasnt happened when Iv been sitting or lying down. I had a slipped disc years ago when I was in my 20's and Im now aged 53, and other than this, I feel healthy. Thanks for reading this. Smile

I have that feeling often and according to my doc it is related to the compressed discs and nerves that come out of the face of the discs at L4, L5, L5S1. It aches bad but doesnt hurt much, but the ache is enough to make me want to cut off the lower half of my body and throw it out the window. I also have the accompaning numbness and tingling in my lower left leg.

sore butt
I have had lower back pain about 2 months ago. I went to a chiropractor and told him about the achey feeling i get in my buttocks. He said my pelvic bone was turned. So i went to a few sessions. I did not seem to help. I do alot of walking with my job and i get a achey feeling in my buttocks and i don't know what it could be. I recently went to my doctor and he told me i i had shingles and i thought that may be the reason i had these symtoms. I wish someone could let me know what i could do or what doc to see to get help
