Back/hip problem please help

My name is andy and im 33 yrs old and a very active type of person but in the last 5 months ive been plagued by a lower back/hip problem. ive had various diagnosis and treatments from doctors physios and chiropractors and nothing seems to make the slightest improvement. i broke my foot in september last yr and on crutches for 6 weeks. during the time on crutches i notice a pain in my right buttock if i sneezed or coughed. when i became more mobile i noticed the pain when i walked or bent over. ive done all the exercises for a herniated disc which made no difference. ive had manipulation, electrotreatment and accupuncture which all made no difference. the only thing which eases the pain is to strech the piroformis but the pain returns 5 minutes after the stretch. If anyone has seen or heard of anything similar i would be grateful for any info or advice



  • Have you seen a neuro or ortho surgeon? Have you had an MRI?
    33yo mom of two. My surgical history...preadolescence scoliosis, kyphosis, and a hot mess.... 5 spine surgeries and lots of items added I wasn't born with (titanium, peek, surgical steel). Guess cremation is out. TSA loves me.
  • Definitely need an MRI as soon as u can I wish I would have pushed for one 7 years ago. I lived with bad pain till I told my dr I want an MRI or I'm going somewhere else. He use to tell me oh its because u workout your old blah blah blah.. I'm 31. I had 2 bulging discs and had micro d. I've had 10 different diagnoses from chiros , pts, pain dr, u name I was diagnosed with it. Im thinking u need a MRI and a good neuro dr. Hope this helps
