Is it common to have pain in your lower back and in the middle of your buttocks area and how long does it last What can you do to help with this?
It is extremely common in pregnancy to have pain in these places. The progesterone relaxes all your ligaments to allow the pelvis to alter shape slightly to allow the baby through. Unfortunately it may relax them a little too much and you may have irritation of the sciatic nerve because your vertebrae are not held in place as strongly as normal. A physical therapist may be able to help by giving you exercises and/or a back support.

It's sciatic nerve pain. I know. I get it all the time, and it drives me bananas. Once I sit down, I can't get back up again, and lying down is worse. Try using a heating pad on it, bengay and Tylenol. It will pass in about a week.

Laying flat on your back, then bringing your knees up to your chest and pulling them in. First one leg at a time, then both. Spend five minutes doing this twice a day and you'll see serious improvement. Also, look into a better bed.
could be your kidney. drink more water, cut down on things like alcohol and ibuprofen and if it doesnt improve go see a doctor
Pain in the buttock could be caused by many conditions. Most frequently this is a simple case of sacroiliac joint disfunction or hypertonic gluteal musculature. The fact that the pain does not travel into the thigh suggests that this is not a severe problem; usually the further the pain travels down… the leg, the worse the underlying cause. Of course, based purely on a one sentence description, no one can be certain of the problem. Someone with pain as described above has two general options: 1) wait and see if it gets better, as it probably will over time 2) see a trained health care professional (eg: chiropractor) to get a diagnosis and see if the pain can be alleviated sooner than natural history will provide. If the pain does not get better as soon as you would like, or gets worse over time, your best course of action would be to see a health care professional. ( Full Answer )
To answer that specifically, an exam from a doctor would have to be performed. The most common cause of such a pain that I've ever encountered was a sacroiliac subluxation. This means that the joint where the sacrum (the bone you sit on) and the ilium (the big round hip bone) come together is misali…gned and causing the muscles in the area to pull. The most efficient way to correct this is to visit a chiropractor. ( Full Answer )

sciatica is a set of symptoms including pain that may be caused by general compression or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots that give rise to eachsciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, or var…ious parts of the leg and foot. In addition to pain, which is sometimes severe, there may be numbness, muscular weakness, pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body. Pain can be severe in prolonged exposure to cold weather. Although sciatica is a relatively common form of low back pain and leg pain, the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve, causing the pain. This point is important, because treatment for sciatica or sciatic symptoms often differs, depending upon the underlying cause of the symptoms and pain levels. ( Full Answer )

Pain in that area is generally indicative of a disk problem - if the pain radiates forward into the anterior area (front of the body), the problem could be severe, especially if it's constant and has lasted for more than week. You can determine the disk / vertebrae which is causing the pain, or w…hether it's a disk at all, by the pain type and whether it follows a certain path. A disk herniation typically presses on an adjoining nerve, causing extreme pain, which feels like a sharp needle. If it's bad enough, you can feel the pain down a path you can trace with your finger - this path is the nerve pathway, and all nerves can be traced from their origin to the end of the path. It's this knowledge that allows us to determine the disk at fault. For example, nerve pain down the back of the legs is the sciatic nerve being pressured by disks at the L4/5 or L5/S1 disks. Nerve pain that begins in the middle of the back, goes down the spine, across the waist and hip, across the thigh and ending at the inside of the knee is the L3/L4 disk pressing on a nerve. Spinal stenosis and arthritis can also cause pain. The type of pain (sharp, burning, radiating, throbbing, dull, etc.) also can indicate where the pain is coming from. Sharp pain is usually nerve related, while dull, throbbing pain is typical of muscle injury. Sharp pain can also be caused by muscle spasms from a disk herniation. Burning pain can be a torn or stretched muscle or ligament. While the liver and kidneys can cause pain in the back, that kind of pain is usually accompanied by other symptoms - swelling, urinary problems, and many others. The key is to determine what kind of pain you're having, it's strength level, whether it's traceable down a path, and then from there try to determine the origin. All symptoms you may have must be taken into account, not just the pain. Learn to keep a Pain Diary also to track your pain. Make note of the time of day, the date, what you ate (many pains can be caused by certain foods), the type of weather (barometer changes cause pain also), and medicines you're taking or took (pain can be caused by drug side effects), as much data as you can. Over time you may see a pattern that you can trace to the origin. At the very least, you'll have data in hand should you require a doctor at some point. Don't underestimate the value of a Pain Diary - it can really help, especially if at some point you need pain medication. Not all doctors are easily willing to give pain meds, but real pain isn't easily faked, and if you've got documentation to show you've been tracking it, it's considered valid evidence. You can get a Pain Diary from the American Pain Foundation's website (Painfoundation.org). Look in their Publications link. ( Full Answer )
There's no specific time period as it depends on the severity of damage and the person - everyone is different. However, I will say that if the pain lasts longer than 1 or 2 weeks and it's not getting better, then you should get an MRI to rule out a disk problem. Muscle spasms aren't uncommon aft…er any type of accident in which the back is injured, but the type of pain will give you an indication of where it's coming from. Sharp, needle pain is a nerve being compressed by a disk; dull, throbbing or burning pain is typical of muscle spasms, though they do also include the occasional sharp pain as well. Also, if you feel the pain extending to any part of your legs, it's definitely an indication of a disk problem in the lower lumbar area. If it stops at the inner knee, the problem is at the L3/4 disk; down the back of the legs indicates the L4/5 or L5/S1 disks. Even if the pain has gone away since submitting this question, it unfortunately doesn't mean you're completely free. If the pain was due to a damaged disk, you'll likely be susceptible to another event, since once the disk is weakened, it's always more susceptible to further damage than a healthy one. Our lower spines take a lot of stress, more than people realize. It doesn't take much to damage or herniate a previously stressed disk either - just bending over or sneezing can do it. You can help yourself by getting yourself into a good stretching routine - by "good" I mean at least 30-45 minutes or more. Flexibility and strength in the abdominal areas are key to preventing further back problems, though it's never a guarantee once it's been damaged. ( Full Answer )

While there are many diagnoses and reasons that are commonly given to explain the cause of lower back pain and how it starts, the most fundamental and primary reason for painful problems of the back is soft tissue inflammation. Soft tissue inflammation is the basic mechanism by which pressure and… irritation are directly applied to the spinal nerves and muscles that register the pain signal that tells us something is wrong in the low back. It is present in all types and stages of arthritis, direct trauma, disc protrusion and rupture, and stenosis; all of these conditions can be said to be the cause of lower back pain, but it is soft tissue inflammation that is the common component of all of these that generates the actual nerve contact to trigger the pain signal.

This sounds like sciatica. It can be really scary and bothersome, but it often goes away after a week or so. It can come and go. It is usually due to a pinched nerve in the lower back, a nerve that leads all the way down to the foot.

If it is chronic (keeps happening), talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner. ( Full Answer )

This is seen in a school called Takagi Yoshin Ryu. They have a way of sitting, or kneeling where they tuck their toes under (to raise up their bottom from the ground.

Acupuncture has been used for at least 4000 years for lower back pain, neck and headache pain, as well as pain in all parts of the body and to treat countless problems that produce pain. The reason that acupuncture has persisted being used throughout written history is that it has proven itself to b…e successful billions of times; it has stood the test of time. The subject of acupuncture treatment for natural pain relief and arthritis pain relief is well studied and documented to be effective for pain control by current modern scientific research. Because acupuncture has been shown to be an effective way to not only control pain, but to treat the causes of many pains, you will find acupuncture being used in most hospitals in the U.S.and the western world. In many countries today acupuncture is the primary method of health care, with drugs being used only as a secondary back up method of care. Acupuncture (done with sterile needles) and acupressure (done with the fingertips) are both ideal for acute (recent) pain, or chronic (long duration) pain from spinal arthritis causing lower back pain, sciatica, neck and headaches. By using this ancient method it is possible to reduce or even avoid the use of drugs for pain control. ( Full Answer )

As a general statement, the very best back stretches to relieve lower back pain are those that correct or improve a particular problem an individual has that is causing back pain. Doing muscle stretches for a normal or healthy area of the body will not be especially effective in helping reduce or co…ntrol low back pain. This is why it is generally best to first consult with a specialist in low back pain (orthopedist, chiropractor, physical therapist) to determine the exact nature and cause of your back pain. Ask to have an exercise and stretching recommendation made for your particular problem that is causing your back pain. Having established that specific stretches for a particular problem will provide best relief of back pain, here are three very good general back stretches. These stretches often relieve low back pain because they stretch and relax muscles that are commonly tight for most people. Stretching the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the low back daily is a great way to avoid the low back tightness and soreness that happens after prolonged inactivity, overuse or arthritis. Doing these twice daily (early AM and before bed) during an acute episode of back pain can be helpful to relieve pain and stiffness, as well as help prevent problems in the future. All stretches should be done to comfortable tolerance and should not cause pain or discomfort while doing them; stop immediately if pain occurs and consult with your doctor. Pelvic tilt - Lie on a padded surface, face up, with both knees bent, feet flat on the surface and arms resting comfortably at the sides. Notice the small hallow space of the low back that is not touching the surface you a lying on; this is the part of the spine you want to flatten in this exercise. Flatten the low back by tilting the pelvis; tighten the muscles of the abdomen (tummy) and allow the pelvis to roll backward so the front of the pelvis rolls upward toward the head. This will cause the small of the back to flatten and firmly press against the surface you are lying on. Stretch the low back by tilting the pelvis and flattening the spine for 5 seconds, then relax. Gradually build to 10 repetitions. Knees to chest - Lie on a padded surface, face up, with both both legs out straight. Bent one knee and raise it up toward the chest as you hold the knee with the hands and bring the knee further toward the chest. While pressing the knee to the chest, flatten and press the small of the back toward the surface you are lying on. An obvious and comfortable stretch should be felt in the low back. Hold for 5-10 seconds. Alternate with the other knee. Repeat 5-10 times. Piriformis stretch - The piriformis muscle is an important muscle of posture and movement; when it is tight it can cause back pain and leg pain (sciatica). Stretch the piriformis muscle by lying on a comfortable surface, face up, both knees bent and feet flat on the surface you are lying on. Raise one leg up and cross it over the other knee, so the back of raised thigh is resting on the top of the thigh that has not moved; the raised knee will be extended beyond the top of the other knee. Firmly pull the raised knee down and toward the chest, as shown in the picture, until a comfortable stretch is felt in the low back and buttock. Hold for 15-30 seconds. Alternate with the other knee. Relax, and repeat 3 times. ( Full Answer )
