I've been having what I'm pretty sure is SI joint pain for going on 9 months now. My doctor has finally ordered an MRI so we can figure out what's going on. The only problem is that I see he's ordered a "lumbar MRI".
Does that typically include the SI joints? Based on some basic googling I'm getting the impression the answer is "no", but I wanted to hear from some of you who have had MRIs for SI joint pain?
If the lumbar MRI doesn't cover the SI joints, is there any reason they couldn't also image those at the same time? I'm extremely claustrophobic and would love to do this MRI thing only once if possible!
