herniated disc?

so the bottom of my butt and upper theighs are very very sore. almost a bruise-like feeling, when I sit on hard surfaces (no physical ailments). I feel a lot better than I did a few days ago. this pain came with possible uti symptoms which I think are no longer there since taking cranberry pills plus after 2 attempts, the uti test is negative. but I will still be seeing a dr. well my sis did some research on the pain and said it could be a herniated disc. but it doesnt feel like nerve tension. and I havent taken a hard fall, so i dont see how I pulled a muscle... any input on whats goin on with me appreciated!

  • I highly doubt it being a herniated disc. I would think you'd be fairly debilitated and possibly have sciatica/nerve-type pain that would be unbearable, not just a bruising sensation. I would think muscular... have you been having muscle cramps or spasms? Definitely see your doc, but I would be very surprised if it ended up being a disc.
