On 09-09 I had a L4L5 MicroD on the left with loss of strenght in the leg. Shortly after walking post surgery I noyiced pain/tightness in the right (opposite} hip. As PT progressed the hip got tighter. I currently have constant burning in the right upper butt and sciatic pain.
The PT speacializes in SI problems and does adjustments nearly every visit along with heat and E Stim. My NS did a SI injection 4 days ago with no relief. They both think its SI related do to compensation. It feels just like nerve to me. They dont think so. When I walk the right or non surgical side feels like its hitting the ground harder(left foot still weak) in the hip while walking. Almost like that leg is longer. I am icing every hour and taking Mobic. I am afraid to walk or excersise as it hurts worse. I have iced for 2 days with little relief. They say to keep walking and stretching. Im finding myself avoiding normal activities. Anyone else have SI issues with similar symptoms? Should I still get out and walk/stretch? Any suggestions on passive excersises to strengthen the weaker side? Im frustrated and need some support.
