Pain in other areas after si injections

Hello, I received my si joint injection about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I don't have pain in my si anymore which is great, however, my pain is now being referred to my piriformis and it band. Anyone else have this happen? What course of treatment did your Dr take?

 I might talk to him about the ifuse see if that's an option. Been in pain for over 2 years now and still don't have an official diagnosis for what's going on but I feel that's it's definitely narrowed down. 

Does anyone know if it's possible to have si joint dysfunction, piriformis syndrome and IT band syndrome?

    hello hols1389!
    welcome to spine-health

    with it band syndrome, you typically have pain in your knees. is this the case? pain in your si joint and piriformis is quite common, i deal with it mostly with injections, stretches and ice packs.

  • My left SI joint fusion surgery seemed to CAUSE a problem with my left piriformis. If I could go back in time, I would not have had the SI fusion so far. It's been 10 months and the pain that was relieved by the surgery (groin, hip, half-way down my leg) has been replaced with horrible bone pain where the enormous pegs (I had iFuse) were hammered into place. I was led to believe I'd feel better in about 12 weeks. This is cited as a minimally invasive surgery - but watch the video about the iFuse procedure and you'll see why it's not - the size of the scar doesn't defer to the amount of nerve, muscle, tissue and bone pain this has caused for me. Been dealing with SI for 23 years and this has been the worst 10 months ever. Sorry so negative - just my experience. Hope others received help from this surgery. Take care of yourself.
