SO happy you don't have sciatica
That probably means it is not disc and nerve related
That is such good news!
I have had L4 L5 surgery and the pain is not fun and excruciating .
Have you had any treatments for this?
You could have serious alignment issues which can be addressed and fixed with GOOD chiropratic care.
The first time I did this I thought "Why did I put up with this so long".
Massage ,ice, chiro , acupuncture may help a lot. You won't know until you try .
I have been doing Active Release Therapy.
HUGE fan !
My chiro does it -NO cracking which makes me happy ) .
It has really addressed my chronic aches and pains ,scar tissue and everything else.

Hope the mountains are treating you good and you get some double,double
