    Leg Pain

    Okay, this has been driving me crazy. I have developed a soreness in my right leg on the back of my leg. It feels like someone is pressing on the muscle on the back of my leg. The soreness starts from about the base of my glutes and runs about halfway down the back of my leg. Kinda on the outside of my leg. The best location that I can think of is about where the leg bones connect to my pelvis. Just on the outside. Now I only notice this pain after I do a few consecutive days of riding. It is more of a dull pain that drives me crazy when I sit in a chair. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I told my Doc about it and went to go and have it x-rayed just to make sure it wasn't an old crash come to haunt me. Nothing broken, fractured or otherwise, and he didnt see any scar tissue or anything like that. It feels fine when I ride, but sitting in a chair and laying down drive me crazy. Any suggestions?
    The best things in life are not things.

    Visit a chiropractor. Had that same kind of thing for a few months, and basically ignored it until my leg started to go numb. A few stetching exercises later, and all was well, until I stopped doing them. Then true pain. An adjustment & regular stretching has done the trick for me. It's probably your sciatic nerve.
