I cannot truly explain what I am about to ask about so I am hoping it makes sense to someone. When you lie on your side, can you feel that joint popping in and out or grinding in and out as you roll forward or backwards? This seems to be getting progressively more noticeable and even my husband can feel it if he puts his hand over the SI joint and it is almost a sickening feeling to feel the movement.
Also another question, has long term gait changes due to limping made your necks and shoulders hurt and/or caused something to move onto a nerve that affects your hands? My neck/shoulders hurt so bad that they override the SI joint pain and my hand spends more time tingling/asleep/numb and lets go of what it holds without notice. My pain Dr said that because its all connected that one area could affect another hence my neck pain that never goes away and only mildly settles down. The SI will will actually settle down if I don't walk too much or sit too much or lay down too much.
I hate this SI joint life!!!
Short history before you ask...rear end accident 4 years ago with severe whiplash and lower back injury. PT, shots etc etc and I am still battling neck immobility and SI issues which they tell me can only be resolved with fusion and I'm not ready to go that route with all the failures of this procedure.
