Unrelenting side pain considered sacroliac joint injury or sprain and its issues

With a history of serious issues concentrated on hip joint and lower back discs along with a decade of various treatment incl. two minimally invasive surgeries, spine stimulator, injections, pain meds, acupuncture, etc. a week and a half ago I inadvertently got myself into a bad posture for an hour or longer  that has caused what they think is S1sacroliac joint problem. This is a new area of pain for me--deep deep in the left side and radius, as if a vicious punch has occurred with pain that remains intense.   It is as bad if not worse than sciatica which I have experience of as well.   My questions are twofold and an answer to either would be helpful.  1. Has anyone gotten permanent relief from a steroid taper? 2.  Is anyone else experiencing the excruciatingly long nights of sleeplessness (and therefore little healing and a great deal of anxiety)?
