Pain and numbness from neck through foot. Indentation on buttock. What is causing this?

I have been experiencing increasing sciatica symp. (pain & numbness neck thu foot ) on my right side for 8yrs or so, 6 months ago I noticed a 1 1/2 square indentation on my rt buttock/hip at the pelvis socket. It s now 2 sq and is hurting more. Doing anything for an extended period becomes unbearably painful. Whats causing this? Will it heal? OTC NSAID s don t have much of an impact.
