So, yea. Although overweight and sedentary, I had always enjoyed that I really never suffered any back pain.
Went to bed feeling fine, and ZAP, sharp pain towards left side top of butt crack. (I apologize, I wouldn.t normally discuss my butt on the web.)
Sitting on a hard chair has been painful today. No problems walking around the grocery store.
Any idea what this is, and how to treat it before it gets worse and spreads? Running to doc right away isn t an option (I will if not improved by this coming weekend.) And of course I.m out of PTO but they would be flexible if need be.

I usually find stretching to help with things like that.

Sharp pain usually indicate pinched nerve..aching is usually over use and causing inflammatory pain. OP..look back on your activity of the day prior to you going to bed..just maybe you tweaked something. Of course, the position of your pelvis during that night may have done something too..

Do you sleep with pillow between your knee's..as often that position decreases hyper-extension of hip ligaments..which, if you happen to be very tired may have slept thru usual triggers to change position...

Meanwhile..such pains often get some relief from heat ( such as moist heat pack/Magic Pak) for about 20 minutes at a time..then slowing stretch area etc.. Physio therapists often apply heat before they do their thing..good rule of thumb to follow IF sharp pain is excruciating...maybe a dose or two of Naproxen ( OTC i.e Aleve) but do NOT rely on it..as IF it continues..Something has to be wrong! Nerve impigement is NOT something to fool around with.. .. Good luck tho!!

Get a rubber butt-cushion for your chair. I have one and it really helps my damaged nerves when sitting.

I remember. I was reaching for something that fell in the car down by my foot and was fighting to grasp it, and kept flailing downward to get it. Tight coat, seatbelt kept me back.
Whatever i was reaching for wasnt worth it. Pain is quite bad after trying to stand after sitting. .
So basically standing and lying down are painless.
Oh this is very bad. Anyone have stretches they know of for this area????

Lower back pain is often caused by inflammation in the kidneys. Kidneys are supposed to be filtering out the waste matter produced by our tens of trillions of cells in our bodies. Most of us have poorly functioning kidneys evidenced by clear urine (with no visible sediment indicating acid wastes are exiting the body), due to our highly mucus forming, lymphatic system clogging, acid forming diets consisting of animal products and mostly cooked (dead) food, refined grains and cooked legumes and--- not enough raw fruit and fruit like vegetables which should comprise the majority of our diet.

I don't know what your diet is like but you might try cutting back on the acid forming foods and increasing the raw cooling healing alkaline forming fruit and fruit-like vegetables. Having nothing but raw fruit, as much as you want for breakfast and even for lunch is a great habit to get into. (I used to think "whole grains" cereal was healthful but - not so. It might be better than a donut or an egg McMuffin.) Healthful eating is all relative.

Our body is mostly water. The most healthful and healing inflammation neutralizing foods for us are the water rich foods. If you try this for a week, I bet you'll see aches and pains quickly dissipate as well as notice an increase of energy and clearer thinking as a result.

could also be a Pilonidal Cyst. They are above the butt and start with SHARP pain. Hubby had a sharp pain and then within a week a cyst formed and he was in the ER.

Do a search for sciatica exercises and see if they help.

If it's a kidney infection you would have a fever and severe pain so that's probably not it. To me it sounds like your sciatic nerve or a pinched nerve. Use a pillow and do some stretching exercises. If it continues or you get a fever, go to the doctor.
