What causes a pinching like sensation above the buttock?
It would be ideal to have a physical examination done in order to get a better idea of the pain you are referring.
However, from your description I suspect you have a pinched nerve, also called a radiculopathy and is caused by a compression or irritation of a nerve where it branches out from the spine.
The pain usually radiates down the path of that nerve and also causes muscle weakness and/or numbness.
You would need a neurological examination and ideally an MRI for further examination and diagnosis.
Hope I have answered your query.
