So I had an SI joint injection on Tuesday, and the relief I got was incredible!!! I still had a little pain, but it was barely noticeable, compared to before. Yesterday, the pain started increasing a little, but still not that bad. Tonight, however, it's come back with a vengeance, but I also feel this immense pressure on my lower back, hip and down my leg. My leg though, it feels like it's my IT band, which I do have damage to. This pressure feels like someone has piled a ton of concrete blocks on me. I've never felt this before. I've tried stretching, laying in different positions, sitting in different positions although I'm not able to sit for very long, heating pad, my tens, and nothing has eased it.
Has anyone else experienced that feeling of pressure, and have a possible idea of what could be causing that? Between that and the pain, it's making my night completely miserable.
