bilateral buttocks pain

I have had bilateral buttocks pain/numbness for 1 year with no relief from Motrin 3200 mg/day and tramadol 50 mg bid. I have had several MRI's which show degenerative disc disease at L4-L5 and L1-L2. I have had marcaine injections and botox injections into my piriformis muscles and I recently had a steroid injection into the L4-L5 disc space with no improvement. I have had PT and acupuncture with no improvement. The only relief comes from wearing a TENS unit on my butt. It hurts to sit or lie down but I have no pain standing or walking. I also have very brisk patella reflexes. I am at my wits end with the constant unrelenting pain. Any suggestions? Thanks, Gagy

Hi,

Hope you are feeling better.
Bilateral buttock pain and numbness indicates nerve entrapment most likely pudendal nerve entrapment. This type of entrapment causes pain in the buttocks which increases on sitting down and gets better when one gets up and starts walking.
Have you tried getting help from a rehab specialist? If not please explore this option after consultation with your specialist.
Take care!
