hello there hopegirl, it takes a good diagnostician to find the source of this pain. a CAT scan does not show disks or soft tissue, so them just saying it's fine does not mean much. it would have showed if you had spondylothesis or retrolythesis which is a vertebrea that has shifted forward or backwards putting pressure on the nerve roots and facet joints and maybe pull on the spinal cord. you would know if this was happening because it does not come and go. does the pain shoot down the back of your leg, to your knee or foot? if you bend to touch your toes do you feel pain on the way down or when your coming up? if your lying on your back flat and keep your leg staight and lift on leg [called a SLR] does the pain occur in your hip-leg area? can you get a person to help you and sit somewhere so your feet are dangling a the person grab your feet and you do like your pushing on the gas pedal. do both sides a have the other person resist and you push against them hard as you can and see if they can tell a strenght difference between sides. then repeat it but pull up like the opposite of pushing the gas and see if ther is a strenght difference. if ther is weakness on one side it could indicate sciatic impingement.
