Why does my back hurt near my bum?
Injuries or overuse can inflame the piriformis muscle to the point where it presses on the sciatic nerve. This pressure can cause a type of pain called sciatica that runs from your buttocks down the back of your leg. The pain may get worse when you walk upstairs, run, or sit. You might also have numbness or tingling.
