So sorry to giggle... believe it or not, never came across this to have to code it before and realized there's no specific code for 'buttock pain'... (as there probably should be!!)
I would go with the 729.1... that where my book lead me first -the low back pain just isn't low enough...
-- or ask your doc to be more specific... without laughing of course!!!
