I've had right SI discomfort for years. My symptoms include a chronic dull ache/tired feeling in my hip and buttock. When sitting and twist from the right to the left, I feel a pull or "crunch" at the top of my hip. Sometimes rolling over to the right while in bed REALLY hurts. The ache occasionally spreads to the groin area.
I have a pretty sedentary job, but it includes several repetitive motions. Many times a day I must get out of my chair and twist from right to left to open a sliding window. I can feel a pull/stretch/ache/pain each time I do this. Therefore I really think this has been the cause or at least what aggravates my problem. Also, I'm sure my posture is a problem. I set at a desk most of the day and when I stand, my natural position is to put most of my weight on my right leg - the side that hurts.
When I first get in bed, laying on my back, I can feel my muscles stretch out.
There are times - sometimes an entire week - when I am totally pain/discomfort free. I would love to know what activities/movements anger my SI joint and most importantly what gives me my pain free episodes.
My monthly chiropractic adjustments ease the discomfort somewhat.
I would love to hear from others with my symptoms. Have you found positions/activities that ease or aggravate? Is repetitive motion and a contributor?
FYI - I'm a 5'1 56 year old female who weighs 130 lbs.
