My left buttock, arm and lower leg muscles occasionally feel worn out even though I haven't exercised. What could be causing it?

ExerciseYourOptions: Depends on how "occasionally."Easiest explanation is that you're out of shape and need to use those muscles more. But if it just gets worse with more activity you might want to see somebody about it. Not just sore for a while, but noticeably weaker. Also, are you sure it's just on the left? Or more weak on the left? The asymmetry is more concerning. So get a checkup if this doesn't get better soon ...Read more

Lower back pain just above left buttock and hurts to arch back and then hurts around the side to the low left front abdomen area. What could this be?
