Suggest remedies for severe pain in right buttocks
Symptoms: dull, aching, though occasionally sharp. The sharp pain was when I did some stretching, bridges and dead bug exercises the day after the triggering incident. Usually mild, sometimes closer to moderate level pain/discomfort. Started about a week ago. No discernible swelling or discoloration today. Didn't check that until today. Discomfort tends to increase as day goes on.
Trigger: About a week ago, did a hip/quad stretch that put pressure/strain on right buttock. You lie face down, half off and half on bed or therapist table with the off leg bent at knee and as far forward as comfortable with foot on floor. You use stretch strap around other foot to help stretch quads and hip muscles of leg on the bed. While stretching left leg, felt discomfort in right buttock. Next day did kind of an awkward squat to pick something up off floor. Felt pain in upper right buttock near butt crack. Now feel discomfort there and more towards middle of buttock.
Need to use PAINKILLERS and ORTHOPEDIC opinion required
Welcome at HCM.
Thank you for the query.
I have gone through your query and being your physician I completely understand your health concerns.
After going through your history , In my opinion , all you need is to give rest to your affected hip joint. You should use painkillers ( acetaminophen) along with the muscle relaxants, like TIZANIDINE. You may need prescription for muscle relaxants since it is not an over the counter medicine.
In your age group , I would say that you should be seen by an ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON once so that you can be properly correlated. You may need to get an X RAY of the affected joint
Meanwhile stay calm and avoid physical activity until it is recommended by your doctor.

Hope your query is adequately addressed if you still have any feel free to ask

Do you think a problem with my hip joint is causing my right buttock pain?
If it's not a problem with the hip joint, what do you think is the next most likely reason for the pain?
Thanks again, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

Thank you for your follow up query.
It appear to be MUSCULOSKELETAL pain , which means it is either originating from the joint or from the muscle of the buttock. There are many causes of buttock pain like abscess , musculoskelatal pain, referred pain and due to the nerve comprerssion , BUT , in your case it is most likely the musculoskeletal in origin.
Stay calm and Meet an ORTHOPEDIC surgeon so that you can be properly clinically correlated..
Use acetaminophen to relieve pain
