Dear Bummer
You may need a x/ray of your lower back as you may have a slipped disc or pinched Ischiadic nerve. You also get a condition where the muscles of the buttocks actually compresses the nerve. A good physiotherapist or biokineticist will be able to evaluate this for you, or your doctor can refer you to an orthopod.
