Suggest remedies for intense pain in lower part of gluteus maximus

i have a pain in what i think is the lower part of my gluteus Maximus on the right side. the pain is quite intense when i am sittin, like when driving. it is somewhat relieved if i put a tennis ball between my tush and the seat. the pain sometimes travels down the thigh to end befor the knee. I excercise a bit--walking about 5.5 miles a day, almost all days.

Hello. There's a nerve root compression here in your lower back. You need an MRI of your lumbar spine to check for that and then you need a referral to a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist--for a proper course of physical therapy
