I am a powerlifter and have been so for about 7 years. I am 22 years old I have been training for 7 years. I have had a pain in my hip/sensoredock for about 2 months now. I recently took 2 weeks off and rested and in past weeks and have stopped squatting. If I squat in a narrow/shoulder width stance, when I break parallel and push off I have a pain on the right side of my hip/deep sensoredock. the pain goes away through the mid squat but when I reach the top a pain shoots down the back/side of my leg leading me to believe it is my sciatic nerve. I though it may be piriformis syndrome but I dont know. The pain does not occur when I sumo deadlift or sumo squat. only narrow and shoulder width stance. I would like to know what you think because this is severely detrimental to my training.

Stabilizing ankle brace increases ankle stability. Perfect for playing basketball, volleyball or everyday activities.
