I am 32 and have been having low back/hip pain almost 2 years. On my "bad days" the pain comes around to the front of my hip and down my leg to the outside of my calf. It can be both side or just one. Usually the left. My primary care doctor initially said it was sacroillitos/si joint dysfunction. Gave me a steroid shot and prescribed skelaxin 3 times a day. That helped for a few weeks. The pain has progressively gotten worse. Pcp ordered a series of x-rays and l-spine MRI. X-rays were normal. MRI showed facet hypertrophy, broad based disc bulging at L5-S1, and left neural formina narrowing. PCP is referring me to a spine specialist and has put me on norco and ibuprofen 800mg three times a day on top of the skelaxin 3 times a day. What kind of specialist should i see and should i push to have si joints checked? The pain in my lower back/hipsis awful. I have stiffness every morning and occasionally during the day. When i lay down at night i get stiff and the pain increases within 10 minutes. I'm not able to sleep a lot of nights, and i have 2 babies 3 & 1. Just wondering if anyone else had had these symptoms and what kind of specialist i should see.
