About once every 5 - 6 weeks, I wake up in the middle of the night with really bad cramping style pain in the bone behind one of my butt cheeks. The pain will proceed very slowly through my boys to the other cheek bone and then go away. The pain is a dull type that can get very intense, 8 on a 10 scale. These episodes last for 45 minutes or so. My doctor gave me all kinds of tests and x-rays and says there is nothing physical that he can find wrong.

My advice would have been to get the knapsack checked pdq, but if he has given you the all clear on that, I have no idea.

Cut back on the squat-thrusts? Odd, maybe get a second opinion?

Nerve irritation just below the ribs in the back may radiate pain into the groin and in your scrotum.

I too would get a second opinion, far better than worrying, that way you will feel better.

Do you carry your wallet in the same back pocket, and do you sit on it?

Is your wallet really thick and fat?

If your lucky its just a pinched nerve from sitting funny...

He is right... if you have a herniated disk it is a big problem... I too suffer from chronic back/leg pain and you do not want to put off treatment. In some cases waiting too long can limit the effectiveness of your treatment... GO!

actually I do carry a large back wallet.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My family is plagued with back trouble. My sister went the route you mentioned and it was just one operation after another which helped very little.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif My father has seen a chiropractor on ocassion for his bad back and it has really helped him a lot over the years. Probably the course I would take first..

As long as I don't agravate the nerve carrying very large loads it is fine. Funny about the wallet idea though. The pain usually comes from my butt region.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Maybe I should use a men's "carry all" like Senfield.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

and probably stop lifting 12,000 btu air conditioners all by myself.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

thanks for the advice though.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Every time a new piece of pc hardware or sim gear comes out I don't get pain in the butt region but I do get a pain in my wallet.....

Wow, I knew somebody would know.

The part I don't get is that it always hits in the middle of the night after I have been asleep for a few hours. Must be a weird position I get myself into. The pain is very intense, but all of this happens only maybe once a month or 2 at most.

Thanks for the help and guidance.

It sounds to me it has something to do with nerves being squeezed by discs, loose cartilage or bone out of alignment. Had it been an infection, the pint would probably be a bit "duller" but more persistent. It may also be stress related, but not knowing your lifestyle it would be hard to say.

My pain was worse if I woke up on my stomach.

I always wondered if those inversion rigs would straighten out a bad back...

I would probably get dizzy using one though.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Dont forget when you are up and about you shrink during the day by about 1/2 inch due to compression of your back etc, when you are sleeping they all relax out again as there is no weight on them, therefore it might be the reason you feel it in the night when everything is loosening up and moving........ as said get the second opinion http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Without a doubt, get a second opinion.

Back pain is very tricky, go see a doctor.

Some people start off by seeing their "GP" and some people like to go to "sports injury clinics", but one thing I strongly suggest is that you DO NOT see a chiropractor BEFORE you go to a licensed Doctor. Their are some back problems that a chiropractor could aggravate if the situation was mis-diagnosed. For instance, some chiropractors will not treat a "herniated disk" because of the delicate situation and possible complications.

good luck http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
