My name is Michael and I have been suffering from chronic back pain for just over 2 years now. My injury was caused by a high speed impact during a car accident.
For the last 2 years I have been getting treated for suspected back pain causing nerve compression to the S1 nerves due to a broad based disc bulge at the l5/s1 joint. However today I saw my specialist and he thinks they may have missed something as I have had no improvement after 2 years of various treatments including injections. Needless to say I am rather xxxx as I have been saying this for nearly 2 years that there is more going on.
They now think I may have damaged my Sacrum and Ilium. So they are proposing injections into the Sacro-Illiac joints to try and see if this is the problem. Have any of you been through this process?
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
