Figured out where the Nerve Pain Originates From in My Buttocks!!!!!

Recommended Posts

LivingLife77

So I was at a massage today and as normal my buttcheek was hurting and nerve pain traveling in a diagonal fashion from the mid-top to mid-lower part of my butt then extending into my leg. As the woman was massaging me, she pressed into each area. One area I said OUCH!!!!!! What is that?

She said it is the Piriformis muscle. Sure enough I got home, looked it up and called a Doctor friend. The web says it is frequently peirced by the peroneal nerve when the siatic nerve bifrucates prior to exiting the greater sciatic foramen. No idea what that means but I do know that it says that you can get problems when the priformis irritates the sciatic nerve.

I would describe all my pain starting from my butt cheek and extending down into my leg. My lower back does not hurt. This occurs mostly on the right side but has hit me on the right before.

Anyone else know about this? I think I am finally getting somewhere. The nerve pain is the worst part of what is going on.

Yep I go for remedial therapy orthopaedic massage (orginally for a back problem), and yep I got lost in the biology, but hey, the pain has gone :)

Huh?

I went to get a massage and the pain still remains. IT did absolutely nothing but the lady did know a lot about muscles. I am on neurotin now low dose and am now looking for the next step to total elimination.

It took several sessions for the pain to go, and some days it still hurts, but I haven't taken painkillers for weeks.

Whats the next step?

I don't know

I am going to tell my main doctor wed. I think it is all related to Herpes and that I don't have what they call Piriformis Syndrome. I think upping neurotin may help. Vicodin obviously helps but I would rather eliminate the cause then the masking--meaning supress Herpes somehow.

Good luck. Part of me was "pleased" - I know that's the wrong word, but realising that the pain was a side effect of H, instead of something.

How have yo got on with neurotin ? Any side effects ?

      It’s related to the estrogen/progesterone balance. You can google and find a lot of info about it.  I have the same problem.  I’ve also recently read about the link to prostaglandins and hsv, and those increase during periods, too.

      I found the love of my life ( my wife) after I contracted herpes. She is totally supportive and understanding. Never give up hope! After my first outbreak and diagnosis I was a WRECK! Depression like you wouldnt belive, but in time you will find its more of an inconvenience than anything. My best advice is to be very selective about who you want to date and tell your secret too. There is still a stigma about herpes and gossip can damage your self esteem.

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.
