Hard to say: Specifically without reading the whole report and reading exactly the context as to which this sentence was made in and what they were looking at (musculature??). But usually when they say something is incidental it's not a big deal. Read more

Be seen: I would not hesitate to be seen. It can be related to your previous surgical site, or sometimes it is another level in the spine, or it could potentially not even be spine related. A thorough exam and appropriate studies would likely determine the cause. Read more

Pulled hamstring?: Several causes of pain in the buttock area. Pain can be caused by a hamstring pull, by sciatica (limited) or by something called piriformis syndrome. Treatments for these things can include exercise, heat, stretching, injections, rarely surgery. Like any persistent pain, a physician should be involved at some point to do a more detailed exam and arrange tests or treatments. Read more

Exam, studies, injec: It can be hard and piriformis syndrome as a diagnosis is likely often missed. Physical exam can help, a nerve conduction with the hip in neutral verses internal rotation can tell, response to injection into piriformis is most diagnostic. Also seeing a patient with severe pain running down the leg with a normal looking MRI of lumbar suggests something else like piriformis syndrome might be issue. Read more

I have cramp pain in my left buttock also felt in my back and slightly down my leg. Which eases off with walking and exercise. What is it?

Possibly sciatica: Sounds like irritation of the sciatic nerve (l4/l5) which begins in the buttock. A tightness in the muscle in that area may be compressing the nerve and causing the cramp but with movement, the muscle relaxes and eases off pain. Next visit with your pcp you should discuss this with them to avoid recurrence. Read more

Pain in left buttock traveling slowly down the backside left leg. Sometimes sharp pain and sometimes numbness while sitting. Better when I'm walking?

Many Possibilities: Depending on how long it's been going on, I would consider an evaluation by a pain/spine specialist. Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis. Also could be a pinched nerve/herniated disc. Either way it might be good to figure it out and get appropriate treatment. Read more
