    Piriformis Pain
    cmbuett posted:
    My name is Christina, 28 yrs old. I had no idea people were going through the same thing as me! Some days I think I'm going crazy and others I fear that the pain will never go away. I was diagnosed with performs syndrome about 3 years ago. I used to be very active with things like acrobatics, dance, yoga, and weight lifting. Since my injury I have gone through 3 rounds of physical therapy with only minimal results. I've also tried chiropractic and massage therapy. I have been in pain every day for almost 3 years and it has taken a toll on my body. I've had problems with over compensation and it's hard to get through basic activities like sitting, driving, and walking. I just wanted to give some support to others who are going through this and seek out some support of my own. I would truly not wish this on anyone.
