Pain when still.

hi all,
i'm new here.
i hurt my back picking up a brick outside my house a year ago.
ended up having a microdiscectomy to uncrush my sciatic nerve in may this year which worked well.
i have regained my range of movement apart from residual stiffness in my low back.

the problem i have now is that i get bad pain in my hips and sacrum area if i stand or sit still for more than 10 minutes. i take codeine for the pain as i have to sit at a desk at work. my thighs are aching all the time too.

is this normal? should i go back to the docs?

this is a link to fritzcrackerz's other post which asks the same question and will keep all responses in the same place..

it is against forum rules to duplicate posts..the reason for this is having multiple threads on the same subject can reduce the number of responses, plus it creates confusion for the rest of the member community. members do not know which thread to respond to. then in the end you may have a number of different responses in different threads. any thread continuity is then lost.
