Burning Pain, When Sitting Only, In My Buttocks, Pereneal Area And Back Of Upper Thighs.

I've been having burning pain in my buttocks around the pereneal area and the back of my upper thighs. I've had this for five years. All diagnostic tests have been negative, but I do have degenerative disks in my lumbar region, but with no stenosis or significant back pain. I have been on Neurontin, Pamelor and Oxycodone and have had injection therapy with no real relief. My doctor at the University of Michigan Pain Clinic is now talking about an implanted neurostimulator as a possibilty. Is there anybody out there that has similar symptoms who has had treatments that have provided relief? Thanks!

Answer

I know this is an old question, but I wondered if you'd found out what was causing this pain and were given an effective treatment for it. Perhaps you'd consider coming back and telling everyone what you found out? I'm sure it would be helpful to everyone to hear how you've gotten on, particularly if you did indeed have the neurostim device implanted.
