Hip Lateral Rotation Syndrome
Your pain is in the posterior buttock that may travel into the leg and have sciatica symptoms. This may be caused by repeated loading of the hip lateral rotators or sitting in a position of hip abduction and lateral rotation (knee out to the side or knee out with foot in).
