On the day after my period stops, I get very bad lower back pain which extends into my buttocks. As it travels into my buttocks, I get a very intense burning sensation from deep inside my buttocks. It feels like hot, heavy coals in my buttocks that are so heavy they are trying to drag down the back of my thighs and rip their way out through my flesh. I have seen numerous physicians, specialists, and a physical therapist about this, and nobody can give me any answers. Any ideas?

Since it's right after your cycle stops, I guess the only explanation is hormonal. You could go to a chiropractor for a mechanical adjustment and see if that helps. Also if you start using a progesterone cream like Happy PMS, it might help too.

I will copy your post over to the menstruation section of the forum so people there can post their ideas. Good luck.

Thank you. I will try the progesterone cream, if that doesn't help I'll check into the chiropractor. Thanks for copying my post to the menstruation section-- I'm new to this website and wasn't sure quite how to do it.

Cramping might come from a vitamin/mineral deficiency. You might want to look into a good vitamin/mineral supplement with more iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Magnesium will help your muscles relax.

Don't forget that we lose a bunch of this with our flow every cycle, so you might just only now be feeling a little drained. Hope that helps.
