Dull ache in right buttock. feel painful when exercising. Suggestion?

I m a 47 year old active woman. I have a dull ache in my right buttock but the pain does not move down my leg. It is really bad a night. If I sit and take my right ankle and put it over the opposite knee in a stretch , it makes it ache more but almost feels better. The same with exercise, it makes it hurt but at the same time offers relief. Thanks.

You could see an neuro, but your pain is consistant with SI joint problems. As this has been going on for a while, you may have some arthritis in the joint as well as inflammation. Ask your doc for some anti-inflammatories or arthritis medicines and see if those help with the pain. When sitting you could try a pillow or sitting on something very soft, like latex (sold in mattress stores), which will cushion your bottom and not press the bones together. Try not sitting for too long before getting up and stretching. Continue with the program the therapist gave you to maintain range of motion at the joint.

Good luck.
