I'm a 27 year old mother of three diagnosed with sacroiliitis last week. I'm confused. Is it the same thing as si joint dysfunction? Everything I've read says sacroiliitis happens bc of an underlying issue. Is it a chronic issue? Will I deal with this forever? The doctor prescribed me Tylenol 4, mobic, flexeril and excersices and nothing is even kind of helping this pain. How do I tell the doctor it's just getting worse without sounding like an addict? I also have tingling all over, is this from the sacroiliis??

    Communication with doctor is so important.
    You need to always tell him your symptoms. And as he prescribes meds, you need to tell him how your body has responded.....whether you feel any relief....little relief...no relief.

    It sounds you have been newly diagnosed. It may take time for doctor to test you and see what treatments and or meds work best for you. I call it trial....and try again. Since all is happening so recently to you, I think diagnosis a week ago, you may be confused and your questions are expected and to be directed to your doctor.

    Just tell doctor how you are feeling and he will direct your care and or reassure you.
