I recently have experienced a mild warming sensation of the
different possible causes
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is understandable to be concerned re any abnormal sensation that you are experiencing.
In many persons these type of sensations are temporary, they are usually related to the nerve supply to the area. The nerves are responsible for sensation.
Nerve supply from the buttocks comes from the lower back. If there are any issues in the lower back eg arthritis or along the path of the nerve then abnormal sensations or nerve related pain can occur. (neuralgia)
Abnormal function of the nerves is called neuropathy , causes include: (1) trauma eg arthritis or injury
(2)low vitamin b12 or folate
(4)liver or kidney disease
(5)side effect of medication
(7)autoimmune diseases such as RA or lupus
(8)neurological conditions such as MS, stroke
(9)abnormal vitamin b6 levels
(10)infections such as shingles
In some persons the exact cause is not known.
If you wish to find the exact cause, you would need to be assessed by your doctor. This would likely include examination and investigations such as imaging of the back (x ray or MRI) and blood tests
There are meds that help with neuropathy eg gabapentin, lyrica, tegretol, amitriptyline, cymbalta
These meds all of different uses, one of them is neuropathy.
If the sensation is not severe, persistent, interfering with daily activities or worsening then meds may not be needed.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
Thank You, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
great idea, that should help
Glad you can pinpoint a cause, that's great. The change in seat should help though it can take sometimes a little while for a response, may not be immediate
Wishing you all the best
If you need any further assistance, can let me know
thank you XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
glad it is improving
I am so glad that the symptoms are improving and hope that they continue to do so.
As mentioned, trauma to the nerves by any changes in the surrounding bones, can affect their function and cause abnormal sensations.
If it worsens again, consider imaging to get an exact idea about what is going on
