Thanks for writing to us.
Your symptoms are suggestive of a nerve root compression at the spinal cord level. For proper diagnosis, an MRI of the lumbosacral spine is helpful. The diagnosis of Pyriformis syndrome can only be done after a physical examination.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
