I am 19 year old boy. I have pain and tingling (no numbness) in sciatic nerve in both legs. It started 1.5 years ago. I had tailbone pain back then. So i used to sit on bench (in college) such that my tailbone does not touch the bench, i.e. i used to sit on backward edge of the bench so that there is no pressure on my tailbone. I think that put pressure on my sciatic nerve. I went to doctor and the pain was gone after a diclofenac injection. But the pain came back again after 6 months and it went away with medicines. But 4 months ago pain came back and the injections or medicine did not work.i had an x ray and mri of my spine, but it showed no abnormality.
I don't have back pain or hip pain. I have tried stretching but pain worsens with that.
My pain worsens with sitting
I have tried exercise to strengthen hips but that also had no effect.
My pain decrease if i apply nanofast gel ( used to reduce pain, similar to iodex) in my buttocks before sleeping, so i have less pain the next day
