Where is the pain Bazo?

Sciatica is typically down back of leg into the calf. Can occur without back pain.

I wonder whether you've got something tight around pelvis - psoas/piriformis ?? If it's top of ITB

In other news - I'm having an easy week primarily as I'm going out for dinners/drinks and got a wedding on Friday.

Currently middle of the itb but also depending on how I sit it can be anywhere around the hip area. It's not the psoas. Had that before. Think it is pelvis misalignment related.

Sounds a nightmare Baz. Don't try and self diagnose, I have done that for the last 5 months. I have had everything going!!!

Shit Baz, hope you can get it sorted, you really deserve a break. It doesn't sound like the prolapsed disc/sciatica that I suffered from 6 years ago (I had significant back pain and numbness).
