Lower back/upperthigh pain.

Hey guys, a few months ago I started experiencing some lower back pain. Especially after the gym, and while being at the gym. More so after squats, leg press etc. Then it started to be more and more persistent with different things I would do. I saw a doctor and I went and got an x-ray and nothing showed. So he sent me to a physiotherapist, whom I still see from time to time.. and to be honest it hasn't help too much. Though, my muscles in my back and buttocks are so tight, that when I am with the physiotherapist, I can definitely feel when he is trying to massage me out. I've been doing pilates, and getting my back tapped up etc, but now the pain is really getting in the way of me doing things. Simple things like sitting down, it hurts! it's painful, and now the pain is going down my left leg, this is very recent.. as only a week ago it was just my back that hurt. Now it's my buttocks and my left leg. Does anyone else have this pain, and what did you do to find out what it is/was and or how did you cope with it?

    I've been on the the spinal roller coaster for many years now.
    I do remember times, esp, in the beginning the difficulty with sitting. I would be squatting in the chair of waiting room. Feet on chair trying to relieve lower back and buttocks.

    After a time of testing and ..not sure..from doctor, he did EMG..and that answered a lot of doctor's questions without me saying a word. It was not painful at all and my body involuntarily responded or didn't respond and showed doc areas to address with my treatment. That is my favorite test as it helped me the most and when I most needed it

    Regarding the pain you are having with your activities...I would listen to my body, unless doctor would tell me otherwise.
    Pain is there for a reason.
    Take care and please keep us posted with how you are doing
