Brief Answer:
Piriformis syndrome

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for posting the query,

The symptoms according to my opinion could be due to piriformis syndrome. The basic treatment for this condition is piriformis stretch and hamstring stretch exercises. You can search for the video of exercises and do them for 5 seconds each. An alternate heat and cold fomentation will also relieve the pain.

But if the pain is very severe you'll have to get an piriformis injection by talking to your orthopedic doctor.

Any issues do follow up.

Take care

Hi Dr. Nagamani,

Thanks for the reply, after seeing images and videos i am feeling it may be piriformis syndrome. But i am not feeling the pain regularly or severe. Sometimes it is very difficult to walk also. Is any permanent solution for this. Definitely will follow the exercises too.

Brief Answer:
Try with exercises

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As you are not having too much severe pain or persisting for long time i suggest you to try with the exercises as of now. If still the pain is persistent as i told you piriformis injection will be the long term relief treatment. They'll inject corticosteroids directly to muscle to reduce inflammation or any muscle tension.

Any issue do follow up.
Take care.

Hello, my name is Michael Boswell. I am a 22 year old part-time student living with my mother. I am writing because I have been to one gastroenterologist before, and they couldn t quite seem to find the answers I m looking for. At the age of 16, I started taking a weight lifting supplement ( creatine pill form) and the day I took 4 of them like what was told on the back of the bottle, I could already tell I wasn t able to hold in my urine, I couldn t even sit down for my football meeting because I had to go to the bathroom to urinate. I then struggled for 2 years through the remainder of High School with severe chronic pain , I went and saw my family doctor who then told me to go see a specialist, and I had two colonscopies and endoscopy done. The gastroenterologist agreed there was something causing my irritation, but couldn t figure out what it was. I had blood work done, and everything came back for Crohns Disease , and they then labeled me with IBS. I m asking for help because I m at a dead end, I still suffer EVERY day with some sort of symptom, whether it be irritation and pain in my stomach, or when I feel a Bowel Movement coming on the urgency that I have because I know I will not be able to hold it in...the medication they had given me worked, but with other symptoms arising. I was prescribed Hyosyamine ER 0.375 MG, and Paroxetine HCL 20 MG. I took them as told on the bottle, and I would RARELY have a BM through the week, but instead I would have one full day (Saturday) of me having to sit on the toilet. I have read that there are no cures, which is very discouraging, this disease or whatever you want to call it, has taken the happiness and normality out of my life, and has replaced it with anger and no hope. I am hoping there is someone that can please help me...
