No: Such pain is usually due to nerve irritation or compression. Intermittently this can also be due to hip problems. If you are involved in contact activity (running, heavy work, etc), you would benefit from decreased lifting and contact activity for 4-6 weeks. Please see you physician for a detailed exam and history.
