I've been in worsening pain for over 6 months. MRI/Xrays normal, bounced from Ortho to Ortho, seen spine docs, etc. Have had 7 nerve block/steroid injections (2 Hip, L1/L2, L2/L3, L3/L4, L4/L5, SI) and nothing has worked. Until recently pain management docs have no clue and wont prescribe anything because there is no diagnosis. Last appointment I heard the doctor say "how did they miss that" when looking at my MRI with a nurse. He has scheduled a S1 nerve block and said something about a spur and impingement.
I must say I am frustrated and not confident this will work. From what I researched I thought the L5/S1 did not impact the groin ( a lot of my pain is there). I can hardly walk and do so with a limp. Work is almost impossible. Has anyone has groin pain with an S1 impingement?
