Saw GP today about my buttock pain he pressed lower back and asked a few questions and concluded it to be arthritis of the back, ( which is not a common thing, apparently). I now have to wait to see consultant on 28th August and an appointment for the pain clinic. I am also getting spasms in my back if I stretch or twist and he said this was all connected.
When I asked about an x-Ray he said it would probably only show wear and tear and that this would be done if I continue experiencing pain in the future. I think he is being a bit cautious and leaving it all to the rheumatologist. I am a bit of a problem as I can't take strong pain meds. and he is a bit restricted as to what more he can do.
Will let you know what consultant says next week.
Thanks for all you help.
