Today I woke up with odd aches in my right leg, and a very tender area to the right of my bum crack (sorry!) . The muscles in the back of my leg just ache, and even in my heel. Not too painful, just irritating. Went for a long walk and had a hot bath, it's no better. Ibuprofen didn't really made a difference.

Is this sciatica, do I need to bother my G p?

I'd see how you feel in a couple of days. You may just have slept in a funny position. Last week I was in agony for a day after sitting in an awkward position for half an hour whilst watching the rugby! Right as rain 48 hours later.
