    hello,what you have is the problem from the ischial bursa,which serves as a cushion between the bone and the seat thus making you to feek comfortable in that position.what work do you do?

    thats where the problem is coming from.well,you can ensure good padding of your seat,perform stretch exercises to exercise the area,when not at work,apply ice pack to the area to help relieve the inflammation,you can get tab arthrotec to relieve pain but dont abuse the analgesic.get up from seating position at every opportunity.This will help you to stress the bursa( that cushion) less.
