I have had leg pain since September. The pain is mostly in my butt, making it difficult to sit for long periods and in the back of my thighs. My doctor ordered a lumbar x-ray, it came back with nothing wrong, and he sent me to physcial therapy. I have had no lower back pain. But, I have had cramping and tinging pain in the legs down to my ankles and toes. The PT gave me a lumbar roll to use and wants me to get up every 15 minutes, as well as lie on my stomach every 2 hours for 2-5 minutes. Now that I have been using the lumbar roll, my back hurts if I don't use it. I have never had back pain like this before.
I am wondering if I really have priformis instead? I walk 1-3 miles a day, use nautalis equipment, wear good supportive shoes, lift correctly, etc. I have never had back injuries and can't think of anything that would have hurt my back.
My job is sedentary - I work 4.5 hours a day making collection calls. I have a second part-time job doing the books for a bridal shop- and this is usually 3 hours a month.
Just wondered what others have done.
