Pain at the back of thigh
Its been a week the pain started when i was sleeping and sneezed suddenly felt a pull in the muscle in my lower back and i got the sharp pain in the buttock. I couldnt stand or sit in the morning. I have had pain killer and muscle relaxants, they doesnt seem to work. Plus the pain goes worse when i sit for 2-3 minutes. I can feel a pull in the nerve in my buttock. I have given the heat compression but doesn't feel good. I cannot walk with long strides as it pains in both buttock and thigh. The pain is less when i stand or sleep. Please guide.

If the pain is localized to ur back then its acute lumbago but if the pain is radiating down ur leg its a radicular pain. Do u have numbness in ur legs... This type of pain is likely due to disc compressing ur nerve root..
