I'll be glad to help.
does the pain start from the left buttock and goes down the left leg?
I would take it easy.
What is happening is that a muscle in your gluteal region called the pririformis muscle is too tight and possibly in spasms - causing compression of the nerve roots under it that cause the symptoms that are you describing.
I will give you a few stretch methods that will help
please follow the stretch methods laid out in this website
the symptoms can take up to a week to improve, while taking NSAIDs is not harmful, it is not the most beneficial thing to do in this scenario
wish you best of luck and a quick recovery.
