Hello. Thank you for posting.

A common cause of these symptoms is a pinched nerve. The pain from a pinched nerve (in the back or hip) can feel like an ache, or it may burn or tingle. You may also have numbness that can spread down your leg.

A pinched nerve occurs when tissues press on the nerve, causing tingling or even weakness. A pinched nerve in your hip or back can be caused by various things, including:

sitting for extended periods of time
herniated disc
muscle strain
bone spur
being overweight or obese

We cannot know the cause of your discomfort. You need to see your doctor for a proper evaluation. Treatment will depend on the cause.
