Hello and Welcome to the Pain Mangement Forum. I am sorry that you have had this pain for over a year with no diagnosis.
Have you been evaluated by a physician? If so what types of tests were done and what type of physician did you consult?
Pain in the back side of a leg can be sciatica. There are many reasons for that symptom. It could be from a structural issue in your spine or an irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve in it's path from origin to end.
I encourage you to see a neurologist, orthopedic or rheumatologist. One of these speciality physicians should be able to offer you a diagnosis. And please let us know how you are doing. We will look forward to your updates.
