I post here once in awhile have not lately. Been having some back-of-***
pain. Could be high hamstring tendonitis, it cause the sciatic nerve
symptoms but most when sitting. I ran run ok and after a slow warm up get my
normal daily 7 mile run in. Does not hurt so much running some pain but
sometimes feel good. Sitting is really pain the ass to be blunt. Not a
stress fracture of the pelvis had that 20 years ago and know what that is,
and don't think any disk problem my back does not hurt and no pain when
doing straight leg raises with the knee straight laying down.

Could be bursitis and it just is irritating the sciatic nerve and I really
have not muscle soreness. Not running probably would help but I just feel
like easy running is ok and it may not get better any faster. My history is
I am 34 year running history age 51 with about 70,000 lifetime miles so I
been around the block. I just wonder if any in the group have similar issues
in past? I ride a bike too and it is winter so I don't ride much but that
does not seem to be any different than running. Did a short 10 mile ride
this evening nothing but sitting at this computer is getting to be a pain.

    Piriformis Syndrome.  You bike also, which makes it worse.  Massage &
stretch.  Get a foam roller and a 'posture ball' to roll on; you have to
eliminate all hotspots in the glute/hip area by aggressively massaging and
rolling them out.  The pain will gradually fade over weeks and months, but
only if you attack the problem.

I won't say I grasp all your pain problems. I'll simply suggest
office chairs can be huge sources of pain problems. I tried checking
out all the office chairs in or  near my budget and none were better and most inferior to the chair I had and that is now in storage. I went to captain's chair with a pad and this has proven to be vast improvement for the back though
*** the bottom. I need better pads.

I am sure you know about core exercises. I have had back pain
that at times was brutal.

Went to the Ortho Dr today decided not to continue to play doctor. He said
no stress fractures hips are fine back is fine. Soft tissue in the hamstring
insertion area and piriformis
issues. This is causing the sciatic nerve to act up. Said my legs hips had
excellent strength with my normal very hard to get knee jerk reflex. For
some reason I have very little knee jerk reflex and always have. In any case
he said I had the usual super tight hamstrings and zero flexibility, nothing
I did not know. The good news is a little PT and stretching and hopefully
running better soon.

Go see a good sport med doc or orthopod if any local available ...
don't mess around guessing ...

Lots of people don't come back running after hitting sciatic nerve and
but pain ... get some good professional look at this along with the
hit or miss advice on this forum.

Most people here giving advice have great intentions but will probably
bias it into if your symptoms match something they have experienced.

PT is good and it is usually covered by most medical plans.  if you have
access to a Massage Therapist either under the PT or or separate, they can
also do wonders.
