Your comments on this are practical, insightful and very helpful. Thanks so much!
Many thanks - this is the first time in the 6 years I've been struggling with the same problem, that an answer sits right. Also interesting to hear that it is a common problem. My problem occurred when I did Natarajasana, or Lord of the Dance Pose without having warmed up. (not making that mistake again).
Is it possible to cure the problem entirely?
since getting my blood oxygenated and back into balance - it doesn't hurt anymore on my joints when i stretch - this recovery product does something so the body CAN heal itself.
I've also had the same thing for many years and thought it was my pirirfomis. My doctor then said it was an ischial bursitis and has given me a steroid injection into the area. He told me is very common in yogis as we sit on the floor alot as is repetitive strain injury.

This is great advice - I've got exactly the same issue and also tried bending my legs but to no avail. Thanks for this practice exercise, it's feeling so much better
