My issues started with tingling calves on both sides that progressed to lower back pain left side only around sacroiliac joint. After seven months the lower back pain has alleviated slightly although I still get muscular tightness and discomfort up my back sometimes. My biggest problem now is my Glutes on both sides. They feel like they have muscle knots in them as they feel lumpy and tender to press. If I sit for long periods this pain gets worse particularly around my seat bones and spreading to the tops of my thighs. I still have tingling in my legs as well. I’m not sure whether my gluteal muscles are staying contracted which is causing them to feel tight, sore and inflamed or whether it’s muscle knots that need removed somehow. I’m assuming it’s related to having had lower back pain for so long. I walk every day, stretch several times a day and do Stuart McGill big 3 exercises for core and back strength. I’ve also added in some leg and glute strengthing exercises to try and help. What I’m looking for is practical advice from anyone who has had a similar issue. My GP doesn’t seem to have a clue and I’ve had different advice from different physios. I need help from someone who has had or is having a similar experience, anyone out there who can help??
