How long does an aggravated buttock muscle pain last?

Kevin

Answer:

Dear Kevin,

It will depend on the cause of the pain.

Muscle aches and pains are common and can involve more than one muscle.

Muscle pain also can involve ligaments, tendons, and fascia, the soft tissues that connect muscles, bones, and organs.

Many conditions and diseases can cause pain in the buttocks.

These range from temporary annoyances, such as bruising and shingles, to more serious diseases with long-term consequences, such as cancers and arthritis of the sacroiliac joints.

All symptoms related to buttock pain must be evaluated in terms of their intensity, duration, location, aggravating or relieving factors, and in view of the presence or absence of accompanying
medical issues in order to precisely identify the cause.
