My story starts at 19 years old when I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease then 2 years of pain left me diagnosed with chronic pain syndrome & si joint dysfunction. Throughout all of this I was told to expect to be in a wheelchair by the age of 40. After numerous steroid & other injections, RF ablation was my saving grace!!!! I had my right side done about 8 years ago, left side 7. I've had some slight pain through the years, but nothing I couldn't handle on my own.....husband and two kids later I'm still going great....until last week. I turned around in my chair at work and in a split second, that familiar pain was back. It started in my hip for about 5 days and just when I thought I was on the upslope of the worse flare up of my life....the excruciating back pain started. So now I'm laid up on the sofa, in pain but so much anxiety over calling a dr, which dr to call, and probably afraid of the outcome of all this!!!!
