Hi Everyone my name is Amanda and for the last 7 years I have been living with a chronic pain condition called pelvic instability (AKA Symphasis Pubic disorder because of the strain on my pelvis I have now caused problems with my back, and I get acute lower back pain, with pain radiating down my legs, I believe it to be the sacroiliac joint as it goes hand in hand with the Symphasis Pubic (don’t they make a Lovely couple (!))
My pain specialist has suggested I have bilateral Facet joint injections to L4/5, L5/S1 an anyone tell me if this would be worth doing? How long will it last? And what are the risks? any info would be great my pain clinic doctor is a waste of space really, he only speaks to my husband and asks him how and where my pain is the last time I went I went alone and he offered me the injections, I told him I wanted first to get some more info, lo and behold 4 weeks later I have an appointment to get them!
Any help appreciated
Also please excuse my typonese I just wanted to get everything typed down lol
