I'm in chronic pain all the time. 20 years ago I was bucked off a horse, did a flip over her back, and landed on my pelvis. Both s.i. joints were injured along with my pelvis. I didn't go to a doctor for a couple of years, so it wasn't treated right way.
Then I was running in a field (at a dog show) and severely injured my right piriformis muscle! I had absolutely no idea what was wrong, but couldn't sit, stand, sleep, and when I went to the doctor he sent me to physical therapy and they couldn't figure it out. So I suggested the piriformis muscle after researching online, and they agreed. So worked through that... took about a year for that to heal.
Then 5 years ago I ruptured L-4 and L-5 and ended up with 2 back surgeries, that didn't work right. Left leg has nerve damage and now the right leg is hurting when I lay down, from my pelvis down through my knee, calf, and into my foot. The muscles or tendons scream at me in waves... and I also have arthritis and bursitis in both hips.
I am disabled because of all of this, and am sick to death of going to the doctors office and then nothing happens, no relief. I've had several shots in both s.i. joints, and no relief. They just aren't connected good anymore.Shots in the hips do not help, just cost a lot of money.
So, my question is... what the heck is causing this horrible leg, knee, calf, foot pain in my right leg only when I lay down? All of the above or maybe just one injury? I sure would like to find something that would give me relief from this.
