You're right though, you get used to it and you carry on regardless.
But anyways back on topic, I surprisingly took the time to read that entire post Haggis and its a good read and keep goin!
That is likely scyatica. Pinched scyatic nerve. It's about as much fun as dentistry with no anesthetics. No joke.
Do yourself a favor, have it checked. When it hits bad you will NOT be able to walk. Dont wait until you have to crawl to a phone to get help.
