I was diagnosed with sacroiliitis 2 years ago although I've been suffering for 7 years with back pain. I had a fusion L3/L4 26 years ago with no problems until 2004.
I am 42 yrs of age, have osteoarthritis, sacroiliitis and degenerative disc disease. I had a second fusion L5/S1 9
months ago. I also have a crush fracture at T9. I am still in alot of pain.
Can't walk or stand for more than a few minutes, have trouble sleeping. Currently working for 12 hrs per week but it's such a struggle. The pain and feeling of being unwell is very draining. Pain is in lower back, hips, groin and thighs, sometimes runs down the front if my shins - both sides but worse on the left.
Does anyone else work with this condition? If so how do you manage? If not are you able to claim for help?
