Saddle selection for Piriformis Syndrome

I was diagnosed with piriformis problems 2 years ago. Stretched and strengthened out of it, but it has repeatedly returned. Now it is to the point that any type of sitting aggravates it. Cycling apparently is the worst. I've been off the bike for 5 weeks and looking to get back on and try it. Thinking maybe there is something better for my condition than the Brooks saddle I currently run on my bikes. Anyone here have experience with this issue and found a saddle that helps?

I've had the issue but never noticed that the saddle made any difference. Hard foam roller helps mine. FWIW though, I ride Terry Flys and Brooks Cambium carved.
