SI joint dysfunction
charl1942 posted:
I have been to a neurosurgeon who sent me to a anesthesiologist for an SI joint steroid injection bilaterally. For three incredible days I felt 90% better. Of course that shows we had it in the right spot, I understand, but what is the solution? Can anyone speak to that being the source of pain and what was done to rectify it?

I haven't been able to sit for more than a few minutes at the time in years. I have mentioned this on this board several times some time ago. I tried a donut pillow and all kinds of soft and more solid pillows, to no avail. That should have told me the problem was further out than the tailbone.

I know you all wish for a quick solution to your problems, so you know how desperate I am. The hardest part is not being able to sit.

The later in the day the worse the pain is. I have not had back surgery, but MRI, CT scan and Xrays have revealed I have DDD, and injured hip bones as well. Other things that come with aging.
