Found myself having pain in the hip and butt about two months ago. Along with this came back pain too. Minor sciatica was showing up too (tingling in the feet, etc). Went to the doctor and he said it might be a herniated disc. He told me to take a few weeks off and prescribed some muscle relaxers.
Anyway, the relaxers did nothing. Went to chiro for a month but the pain only seemed to get worse. Started going to physio and they said I had piriformis syndrome; that my glute was too tight and it was pressing against a nerve as well as creating hip pain. They gave me 4 stretches to do 3 times a day.
Anyway, thats two weeks ago. the stretches seem to do nothing but aggrivate my glute and the glute pain is worse than ever, as well as the hip. Back pain seems to have died down.
Now I haven't done squats or deadlifts in about a month and a half and its depressing me. I quit working out alltogether about 4 weeks ago. All treatments have done nothing and the pain is still there, especially in the glute/hips. I initially thought it came from BOR's and Deadlifts but now I have no idea.
Has anyone ever been through something like this? Any kind of insight would help.
