Causes of Buttock Pain (Buttocks)

There are several causes of butt or glute pain, depending on what you are talking about.

Gluteal / gluteal muscle pain – Do you have pain in the large muscle of your butt while sitting, standing, walking or during sexual intercourse or other physical exercise? If you press the center of your butt muscle, does it hurt more? How about during the massage when you are rubbed hard in that area? Are you about to jump off the table in pain? Does the pain radiate to one or both legs? Is it sharp, dull, burning, or painful, all the time? Does it prevent you from sleeping? Do you have cramps? All of these could describe the pain in the butt caused by the sciatic nerve.

What is the sciatic nerve? – The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that exits the spine in the lower back, crosses the gluteal muscle, and runs down the legs. It can easily be aggravated by stress. When you’re stressed, your muscles get tighter and squeeze that nerve, causing all kinds of symptoms and generally making your life pretty miserable.

Lower back / back pain – The lower back and buttocks are closely connected, so often if you have pain in one area, you will also have pain in the other. The sciatic nerve runs through the lower back and the buttock. Some people have pain only in the lower back, others only in the butt or only in one cheek, some people have pain in the lower back that radiates down one cheek to the leg. All of these describe a typical sciatic nerve problem.

Pain in your anus (gold hole) – It is more than likely that it is hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are veins in or just outside your anus that swell, harden, and become very tender. Sometimes you can even see hemorrhoids by pointing your butt to a mirror, leaning over, and extending your buttocks. They may look like small round purple balls (which is the vein) or they may be red and swollen. (Google ‘hemorrhoids’ and select images). Hemorrhoids are caused by sitting (truck drivers often suffer) constipation (straining while trying to shit will create hemorrhoids over time) pregnancy can cause hemorrhoids due to constipation and pressure from the growing baby and dehydration. Being chronically dehydrated is one of the main causes of constipation and, therefore, of hemorrhoids. You should drink at least 2 liters of water every day. Coffee, tea, and soft drinks don’t count. You can get Preparation H at your local pharmacy, which will provide temporary relief from itching, burning, and swelling. But to get rid of them for good, you need to add more water to your diet and more fiber. I like to drink 2-3 liters of water a day PLUS like lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. I no longer have hemorrhoids due to these changes. If you think they are hemorrhoids, but they don’t go away after a couple of weeks of hydrating and curing your constipation, see your doctor. PS: the bathroom is NOT a library. You don’t sit there for hours to read, that’s one of the main causes of hemorrhoids.

Pain or burning at the top of the butt crevice – If you have pain, redness, itching, burning and / or minor bleeding at the top of your butt crevice, you could have a pilonidal cyst.

From Wikipedia:Pilonidal cysts are quite painful, affect men more often than women, and generally occur between the ages of 15 and 24. Although they are usually found near the coccyx, the condition can also affect the belly button, armpit, or penis. “

These cysts often get bacterial or fungal infections. If you want to treat it yourself, get an over-the-counter antibacterial cream and treat yourself twice a day after you shower. If you still have the problem after a couple of weeks, you may want to see your doctor. I know, it’s embarrassing. I had to go to the doctor once for an extremely painful hemorrhoid.
