Hello everyone, I was just reading through some of these threads and hope that I could get some light shed on my situation.
I am a 23 year old male in decent shape who has played a mixture of sports for a number of years. My problem is that whenever I sit down for a period of time (a few minutes sometimes) I start to get a dull ache pain above my right tailbone to the right side. If I sit down for a longer period then I start to lose feeling in my right leg near the hamstring area and at times right down to my foot. If I run my hands down this area above the buttocks then I can physically feel that the right side is sticking out more than the left. This doesn't just happen sitting down, sometimes it occurs while laying down in bed or standing in the same place for a period of time.
I have had this problem for almost 8 months with no signs of relief. I have seen a couple of chiropractors, an osteopath and a doctor but nobody has been able to determine the problem or find a solution for it. I have stopped playing impact sports for this duration and have just started cycling and walking instead.
Prior to this pain I was playing a lot of football and had an incident where it felt like I tore my hamstring muscle during a match. I would start to cramp up a lot easier than usual as time progressed and I noticed that towards the end of a running session I would be in pain with each step. I am not sure whether the exercise is related but as I say, I have stopped it for a long time now and still not seen any recovery.
Can anyone help me out or at least give suggestions? I would appreciate absolutely anything!
