Hi, I'm new to this forum, in fact any forum but my problems are degenerating and it's time to try to kick this in thee butt!!

Im not really sure how to label my problem. I think I have a hyper mobile SI joint. My pelvis and sacrum seem to rotate / tip / twist according to my osteopath. He can realign me and get me nearly pain free but within days - a week max I am back in agony. I've seen numerous physios / chiropractors all of whom seem baffled, none of whom seem to agree and I'm left in this awful state of pain and the unknown of what steps to take to get better. It's been going on for 2 years started with groin pain and has got progressively worse. Unsure of a trigger but I did have SPD badly with two pregnancies (last one 2 years before) and did have a heavy fall on left hip (where pain seems to start from) some 6 months before.

When I am misaligned (if that's what it is) the domino effect of pain up my spine into my neck and head and down to my feet is unbelievable. Yet everything I read about SIJ pain is that it is much more concentrated.

Has anyone out there experienced similar.? Hoping for advice on where to go next as I'm scared I can't look after my young family, hold down a job as the family's main bread winner and enjoy life like I used to.

Thank you very much

    I think often times spinal issues can take awhile for know exactly what wrong and then proper treatment .
    When the pain started with me, my primary doctor no longer knew what to do with me, so she referred me to pain management doctor.

    That was best thing for me. He was able to read my X-rays . He also did testing, one of which was an EMG.
    Totally painless and doc read test which helped him understand what part of spine involved.
    I had epidurals ..not all successful..but mostly meds to control my pain and nerve pain. I too have groin pain, mine due to lower spine issues.

    For,me, not a candidate for surgery to help me... .but having pain under control and regularly seeing doc for continued med management...priceless.

    You are very busy with children and work and I know it' must be difficult to find time to take care of yourself. But it is important so are able to be your best for the kids...and best you can be for yourself. I know being mom is one of most strenuous jobs there is.
    Do take care! And please keep us posted with how you are doing!
