Hello @prudence - I see this is your first post so I would like to welcome you to Mayo Connect. We are happy you found us.
Are you able to share a little more information about what it is that is really bad? Have you seen a doctor about it?


That is so interesting. I had never heard of anyone having it there before but me. My Dr didn't even seem to respond much to it. I got my PN from chemo( had colon cancer 3b). At first mine was so bad in my buttocks and vaginal area, also hands and knees down to toes. It gradually went away except in hands, legs and feet. I thought I was nuts before though. Glad to hear I wasn't the only one!

Yes I’ve seen several specialists and no one seems to know about it.
I can sit down for about 5 min and my bum goes numb and very uncomfortable.
It’s been about 5 years and doesn’t change much. It’s really hard not to be able to sit

No your not the only one they call it bleacher bum like when you’ve been watching baseball all day.
Only this doesn’t go away

Hi @prudence -- I found a really good explanation of "pain in the butt" that I thought might be helpful to this discussion thread.

Piriformis Syndrome (Pain in the Butt):

Also found this article in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association - Diagnosis and Management of Piriformis Syndrome: An Osteopathic Approach:
