sorry your feeling so much pain but rule everything out and see what's left. I suffered the same and after surgery I still have problems with Sciatica in both legs for which I'm taking a narcotic for and just recently stopped taking (stupid me) I'm trying to see if I can tolerate the pain without the drug and so far It's not a ten but an eight and I've lived with an ten for many years so I'm going to see how long I can do this. Back to the point, I had five months of PT post op and still complained of the pain and tingling in that left foot which I think is just nerve damage by now but my therapist said that I too had Periformis Syndrome so I went to see a specialist who ruled it out and told me that my hip muscles were just very weak and unstable from so many years of having a weak back which in turn causes everything below the body to become weak. I've been "Rolling out" which is also one of the treatments for Periformis and the purpose for that is to stretch out the muscles which tend to tighten up around the sciatic nerve and thereby strangulating it. I'm still working on it and I can walk around during the day pain free but it's the night that kills me. So I continue to do my stretches and work out at the gym to strengthen my back and core. Let us know what you find out.
I hate pain and I'm sorry your having it and this is the best place for you to be.

Blessings, Viv
