Hi guys, I just found out that I have sacroiliac dysfunction and I had an epidural on the right side where my leg hurts the worst. They also did my facet joints and lumbar- a total of 4. Relief was only a few days and now the pain has crept up relentlessly. I have deep, aching pain in my lower back that radiates into my right buttock and then both of my thighs. Things are further complicated by the bilateral nerve damage in my legs, especially the right. Sitting, driving, and walking is agony. I have a Dilaudid pain pump with Bupivicaine for 5 years now, which had rescued me from a pitiful existence by controlling the pain better than my experience on orals. I have Norco for BT pain and muscle relaxers, nerve pain meds, and anti inflammatories. It almost feels like when I blew my L4-S1 discs years ago. I never thought sacroiliac dysfunction was this painful..boy was I wrong!
