Our expert says:
Difficult to say. Perhaps nerves in the lower back or hips that are aggravated in the specific positions - that seems a possible explanation, given the positions where you experience the pain. Also, the fact that it's both side would lead one to suspect something in the lower back, as opposed to muscle injury. Not that this rules it out, of course - it could be anything, and the reality is that you need to probably see someone about it. It's impossible to diagnose like this, and of course, the diagnosis is key as it dtermines the treatment. So while I hate to pass the buck, that's what you would need to do - a doctor or a physio assessment.
