I am a 25 year old female ...no injury... That had intermittent pain for 4 months and after being stubborn I finally went to see a Dr. My pain at the time was in the back of my right hip . He diagnosed me with piriformis syndrome gave me some Meloxicam and sent me to Physical therapy... Lots of stretching later I had temporary relief.
After switching insurance I had to see a new doctor who thought it was trochanteric bursitis... Right hip xrays normal so I was referred to ortho. I found a well recommended hip specialist who couldn't find a reason it could be my hip but perhaps my back instead and diagnosed me with facet syndrome. More Physical therapy later I was getting better. My pain had moved closer to my spine.. But of course that relief was temporary and the pain came back worse then ever. I couldn't sleep without taking ibuprofen and I had to give up working out.
I saw a spine specialist that believes it to be SI dysfunction. He recommended the steroid shot which my insurance won't pay for but I was desperate. I paid out of pocket and after a week I do notice a difference I would say at least 50% . At my 2 week follow up appointment he just told me I could get another shot or just wait it out . I don't want to spend another 700$ out of pocket up front if it's not even guaranteed to help further and he left me feeling like this could be the rest of my life. Help! I thought about trying Chiropracter by I'm not sure I believe in any of that.
I don't know where to go from here . I just want to be normal again ....
