Buttock Pain: This can be the result of sacroiliac pain or referred lumbar pain. Pain in the si joint, where the pelvis meets the spine, is not terribly uncommon. This pain usually worsens with any weightbearing on pelvis (sitting, standing, lying on side). One or both sides may hurt. Injection is diagnostic, and pt usually helps. Referred pain may be arthritic disc or nerve pressure. Piriformis another cause.
