Has anyone experienced burning, tingling pain in their buttocks and backs of their thighs.....it is there as soon as you have sat down for 10mins and laying on your side does not make it go away.
I have also noticed that when I go out for a short walk, there is pain and stinging in the tops of my legs, which doesn't seem to go away and in away makes it worse ....really not sure what this is all about but have had it now for nearly two weeks.
It really is a pain in the rear!!!!!
thanks in advance for your replies
p.s. I did have an angiogram just before holiday and they made entry through the groin.....just wondering if this has had anything to do with it also.

I think I remember seeing your name on the other site, but since this is your first post, I wanted to welcome you to the sclero forums!!! I look forward to knowing you better.
I have had similar problems with what you are describing. It is due to my back being out of alignment. So once I see a doctor and get it put back in it helps with the pain. I have to go in once per week actually.
The best to you!

Please keep in mind I have no medical training at all, but it sounds to me like sciatica. See your doctor for further info, and possibly for some physical therapy. It tends to be a chronic condition but there are many things that can be done to alleviate the pain.

I wasn't sure if Sclero effects the muscles and nerves in this area, and thanks also Shelley, I suppose it could be sciatica, but thought you had to have back pain with that....suppose the best policy is to get it checked out....just dont like it when things like this happen in these areas if you no what I mean.
Oh well, we have to put up with worse lol
Thanks anyway for the helpxx

I also think it is probably sciatica. it seems to flare up every time I take a long walk up hill. it gets to the point where you can't even lift you leg anymore. the only treatment I have found is to let it rest for a day (usualy more)....warm baths or heating pads.
so sorry to hear about your pain...in the rear!
