I thought I'd try to ask for help here since nobody seems to know anything about this. For maybe the past year or two I've had this sensation in my butt area (feels deep inside the tissue) periodically. Now it doesn't happen every day or even every week or month. I could go months without the feeling or it could happen several days in a row. It usually happens when I'm sitting down, although it doesn't seem to matter how long I've been sitting for this feeling to affect me. It only happens on one side of my butt area and it feels like it's deep in the tissue. It comes out of the blue and lasts for about 30 seconds and comes back several times before usually going away. It's just a really weird feeling and I don't know how to describe it. It's not really a tingling feeling but I feel like it's a nerve issue. It makes me want to massage the area because it's uncomfortable. Has anyone experienced anything like this before? I just wonder if I'm the only one.

Does it kinda feel like when you hit your funny bone?....or more like a little cramp?

Sounds to me like it could be a nerve or muscle spasm.

I used to get a feeling like a muscle rippling through one of my butt cheeks, but it hasn't happened in many years now that I think about it. Not painful, just a ripple.

I just figured the muscle or a nerve got irritated by something.

Just a guess.

Of all the human beings in the world let me assure you that you aren't the only one to have the sensation you describe. I used to have something similar only on one side of my buttocks. Later on I was diagnosed with an auto-immune illness and I attribute that strange sensation to that diagnosis.

The sciatic nerves run through each of your butt cheeks and down your legs. It's possible that something is impinging on that nerve while you are sitting.

Hmmm, well not really like I hit my funny bone, but I don't know how to really describe it. It doesn't radiate, it doesn't pulse, not burning, not cramps (which I do occasionally get in my foot and calf), just a really weird feeling that makes me want to massage it. Maybe a pinch deep inside the tissue is the best way I can describe it. It's sort of painful, but mainly just really uncomfortable. I'm guessing it might be a nerve like you said. I was just wondering if someone had the same feeling. What confuses me is that it comes and goes, sometimes I don't feel it for months but I've felt if for the past 3 or so days. If it becomes more frequent I may have to see a doctor, otherwise I'll probably just deal with it.

First thought: Sciatica. It's a pinched nerve that happens to lots and lots of people. There are exercises & stretches that can help. Some people eventually get surgery, but it's often not necessary or is just a nuisance that comes and goes.

Does it radiate down your leg? I have piriformis syndrome which is pain in the buttock/lower back that does feel like I need to massage it but also the feeling extends down my leg. There are times when it gets so bad that I can barely walk but normally it's simply uncomfortable.

Piriformis Syndrome
Wasn't expecting this thread to be revived but I haven't had the feeling in months. Not sure why but it just hasn't been there so that's good. The feeling doesn't radiate down my leg, or anywhere for that matter It just used to stay in one place for a few minutes and then go away. I can't say it was painful but it was uncomfortable, but didn't impede any physical functions. Anyways hopefully it doesn't come back.

I've had something kind of similar?? & it comes and goes.....I can go weeks or sometimes months but this time its stayed for over a month and has been going on for years.
The only way I can describe it is I feel like my buttocks and upper thighs are in a straight jacket!!!
Not painful, just soooo uncomfortable I can't stand it ...I work from home & stand up when I'm working on my computer cuz I can't sit all day
.I can barely drive the car or go see a movie because I have to sit! I sleep on my stomach. If I do squats or excersize the glutes I feel better temporarily. Ive resorted to punching my butt because that helps for a few minutes. I know it sounds so weird.....HELP.......I hope someone in the world knows what I am talking about

btw: I'm a 47 yr old female with adhd and just weened off Effexor (I read that it could cause something like this),that I have been on for 17 yrs and I am feeling better already although its only been a handful of days since I took my last dose.
