I've recently re-injured my low back(?) and believe I'm having sciatica pain but also have pain in hip. I'm wondering how you tell the difference between SI and sciatica and if the treatments would be similar anyway. Maybe I have both syndromes?
Chiro trmts usually help my sciatica but haven't so far after 5 trmts. Icing, warm water exercise/floating!, tramadol, valium and various ointments have not helped pain. I took extra meds last night and still had trouble sleeping. I've had to give up my gentle daily walks because of the pain in my SHIN (nerve not shin splints??), foot and hip.
X-ray of lumbar spine to be done tomorrow.
