Im not sure who direct this to or if anyone can help me but ive been having pains in my left glute. It started about 2 weeks ago and it felt like it was maybe strained a little and only hurt every once and a while if i was sitting then stood up or moved in certain ways, started out as kimd of an aching pain and has gradually turned into a sharp pain almost constantly the last few days. Today at work getting up and down on the concrete really bothered me and never does. Laying down seems to hurt really bad even though there is no pressure on my leg. Hurts to stand in just about any way. Is there anything I should do? Ive been training through it and honestly don't notice it when squatting but all day at work it hurts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It can be a common injury. I've found that stretching the piriformis muscle and rolling the area work best for self care.
Whenever I stretch one area I always work with the surrounding area also. Make sure you so your hips, hip flexors, quads, hamstrings, and calves.
I can't link from my tablet for some reason but if you google hip/piriformis stretches you see how to stretch the area.
Good luck.
