Pain in crease between buttocks and hamstring -- what is it?

forgetcolorfforgetcolor Posts: 1
I'm trying to figure out what this pain issue of mine might be. The location is along the horizontal crease between the bottom of my buttocks and the top of my hamstring. It activates when I sit, and gets worse the longer I sit. If I sit long enough, it gets so bad I can't sit anymore (e.g. sometimes after 1 hour or less). The pain is burning and aching.

I also suffer from coccydynia, although this emerged later than that. I believe it started when I was sitting on a chair that was too high for my leg length. Later it reemerged when I was stuck sitting in a very hard wood chair.

I've read about conditions including ischial tuberosity, piriformis syndrome, hamstring tendonitis, bursitis, and sciatica, but I can't find one that describes this particular pain pattern.

Thanks for any help!



  • You will never know untill you have an mri or mylogram or some of the tests because a lot of these symptoms are close to many causes that even with mri they are not always positive. Your best bet is see a good dr ortho or neuro to figure it out or you will be just guessing and your guess is about as good as ours. Good luck. Hope its nothing that needs surgery
