Not looking for medical advice, but I have had three different diagnosis for my pain, and I am wondering if anyone else here has gone through this.
First I was told piriformis syndrome, next an MRI revealed grade one spondylolisthesis with bilat foraminal stenosis L5/S1, today I was told that the spondy was minor and has probably been there for quite some time, had a extension series of xrays to check stability of L5/S1
The pain is in my butt when sitting. It doesn't bother me when lying down, walking or on an elliptical. I sleep on my side pain free, no pain going down the legs, and occasional lower back pain that I think is from the core exercises and stretching.
The issue is that the treatments jump from place to place, PT focusing on L5/S1 with stretching and traction, epidural first in the L5/S1 area, then today in my buttocks.
Has anyone gone through three different diagnosis like this, or have any familiarity with this type of issue?
