Impact to the buttocks area could indicate a contusion of the sciatic nerve which would cause the symptoms you complain of. There is also a rare syndrome called “piriformis syndrome” where this muscle could be compressing the nerve. Normally an EMG will pick this up, especially if there is muscle atrophy as long as the electromyographer tests the atrophied muscles. General treatment is PT and time.
