A:    The burning feeling in the buttocks might be due to a sciatic nerve irritation, but you are also describing urinary symptoms that have not improved with the antibiotics prescribed, in that case I strongly recommend that your mother have a reevaluation by a specialist (Urologist) and lab tests, not only urine but cultures and possibly a sonogram to determine the cause of her symptoms and choose the adequate treatment.
