Welcome and thanks for sharing with us. I'm sorry for the intense pain you've been experiencing. I also have lower back pain, in addition to pain in my right buttock, right back thigh, and right foot.
I've seen several doctors so far since extreme symptoms/pain manifested themselves within these areas. At one point I was told, by a chiropractor, to follow through with a set of exercises. These exercises were very difficult to do, and eventually I understood that they did not help me. You have a special connection with your body that no one else does, and when you have that gut-feeling that what you're doing is hurting it, it is usually best to stop. I stopped these exercises for a couple days before my neurologist appointment, and he agreed with me that they are not necessarily helping. For some ailments in some people, he said, they can be helpful. But, if you don't know exactly what you're dealing with, it is best not to take the chance.
Also, a week is a relatively short time in terms of CP. There is no way to tell the expected time frame of your symptoms or base ailment until you have good, solid information from a variety of competent doctors. Definitely let your doctors know about this, and get all the advice you can. Many times PT is a good approach, so please don't give up, just go to a different place or seek different PT treatment. Remember: You are in charge of your body, and only take advice from those doctors and technicians that you have a good relationship with, and whom you trust.
Sorry again for you pain, I hope your problem is resolved as quickly as possible.
