Pulsating Pain in lower left back near butt

I have extreme pulsating pain in my lower left of my back near my butt, in comes around sporadically, every now and again, but it is extreme. I have been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease, and scoliosis, i haven't seen the doctor yet for this specific problem, does anyone have any ideas of what it could be? FYI: if it helps im 22 years old, female. Thanks!!

Hey sorry to hear that you

Hey sorry to hear that you are feeling this. I know exactly what you are talking about because I get it on my left side. I am 25 and hurt my back when I was 17. My PM doctor told me that it is from inflammation around the SI joint. I take daily medications, but I found that for this specific intense pain episode if I take a muscle relaxant or lyrica it subsides. I also make sure that I schedule an SI injection ASAP with my PM doc. I know that too many injections are not good for you, but I have found that for this specific type of pain they really help. I wish I could say the injections helped everything. I hope this helps and that your doctor can do something for you. I'm here if you need anything. Take care!

No problem! Let me know

No problem! Let me know what your pain management doc says. I am fortunate to have an excellent doc who knows what he's doing & talking about. Mind you I've probably seen about 20 doctors lol. I know that injections don't help everyone, myself included, but it does relieve that inflammation that medications can't touch. Best of luck!
