21 year old male active duty US military here.
I have been dealing with SI joint pain for at least 8 months now, at least that's what the docs tell me. Having the MRI/Xrays come back as completely normal has been a soul crusher.
Anyways here i sit, july 4th in severe pain. My wife and I decided to stay home and have a few drinks and watch the fireworks from our balcony. I have had about 4 drinks and if i wasn't intoxicated i think this may be the worse pain i have ever been in. It came out of nowhere, i was lying on the couch! Leg going numb, intense back pain on the left side right above that SI joint.
My physical therapy doctor is the only one actually trying to help me. The military doctor pretty much told me stop making appointments. I have seriously lost hope. I have been doing physical therapy for 4 months and no help. I can go 2-3 weeks almost no pain, then bam 2-3 days of such bad pain i have to take leave from work. Whenever i go into the med group they treat me like im just trying to get some pills or not have to work out.
Tonight was the first time i had pain so bad i actually fell down when trying to stand. I am seriously concerned that this is getting a lot worse, and the med doctors don't give a EDIT.
Has anyone here ever had relief from this? Anything i can say to these doctors to actually help me? Sorry for the rant, just had to tell someone other than my wife.
