Pain in left butt cheek

Hello all,

I am a 34 year old female with no injuries to the back that could have caused the pain.

The past two weeks I have been getting back pain when I wake up in the morning. The pain use to subside as the day continued. Then I wake up the next morning in pain again. But this time, the pain is not going away as the day goes on. The pain has no shifted to just one side.

So now the pain is in my left butt cheek. It hurts like hell. I cannot sleep because of the pain no matter which way I lay. I went to the ER and they took X rays and they said there is no injury to my discs and everything is in place. They gave me muscle relaxers which is not doing absolutely nothing for the pain. I also felt a slight burn go down my leg today but it only lasted for a couple of seconds. What is causing this god awful pain if the X-rays showed nothing. Has anyone else experienced this before and what has a doctor told you? I'm
so frustrated and sick of the pain.

    I have similar pains and my pain management doctor tells me it from my lower spine issues.
    My buttocks to toe pain .....doctor said is sciatic.
    I've had periodically, epidurals...and for me, they have helped to lessen my buttocks pain and or numbness and other leg to toes pain and issues.

    Last week I had epidural for left leg and looking forward to later this week having another epidural for my right buttock to toes pain and issues.

    My pain management doctor, years ago when symptoms first started, did a variety of testing.
    For me, the EMG nerve conduction test was very revealing to doctor re my spinal issues and how to treat.

    I originally did not think of my spine causing any pain as I don't remember particular injury...but for me, checking out my spine was so worth it and then doctor had plans A, B, etc....to help manage the pain.

    Just because my issues are chronic does not mean yours are or would be.
    People are so different in symptoms and results from treatment.

    Sometimes ruling out issues will aid Doctor in discovering cause.
