This is Dr. David

this can be from a slipped or herniated disk in your lower back which can pinch nerves in your lower back which exit your spinal cord and cause pain in your buttocks which can radiate down into your legs.

sitting can cause more pressure on these nerves

you should see a doctor and get your lower back checked and examined.

you might need an MRI scan of your lumbar spine to look for herniated disks and pinched nerves.

do you have a doctor you can see who can check your back and nerves?
