Is it neurologic?: First, is your problem neurologic; or is it due to intrapelvic issue or abdominal problems. If neurologic, most likely a problem with lower lumbar nerves can cause buttock pain but lower abdominal pain (not pelvic pain) usually involves upper lumbar nerve roots. However problems with uterus, etc, colon can cause very similar symptoms, requiring quite different treatment.
