Stabbing pain in bum when running came and went. Mobility poor next few days and hurts when squeeze legs together and release. Trapped sciatic? Ideas?

In brief: Piriformis

Could be piriformis syndrome - which yes is where the sciatic runs through gluteal muscles - if you google there are good stretches for that and I am a big fan of foam rollers.
