Hi I am needing some advice! I am a 32 year old who has never really had much back pain other than the normal before and durning  menstrual cycle. I fell down the stairs about 7 weeks ago and fell on my buttocks and right side of my back. I have been to chiropractor for a few adjustments first to see if that could fix the problem. After still being in severe pain about a week later I went to a spine doctor who ran some test and scheduled a MRI which only showed a some disc bludge on l5 S1 but not anything to cause all my pain. The dr then thought my si joint so we scheduled for an si joint injection at surgery center.  The dr actually did 3 injections . The pain and burning numbness down my leg went away for about a week and then returned back 100%! The back pain isn't as bad as the burning numbness weakness of my leg and groin area! I then returned for a check up and he noticed my leg had gotten a lot weaker than before. He then orders ct San and pelvic x ray.. the showed up the same as MRI. Dr then decided to do a piriformis injection. I felt a little better for a day or two then was the same. He wants me to see a neurologist for a nerve conducting test to check my nerves. He still has no  diagnosis but not giving up! Sorry for the long post I am in desperate need of answers! Please any advice could help!

    Don't stop searching for answers! I saw a neurologist when I had severe sciatica and then a neurosurgeon. A different set of eyes on your tests will help along with additional testing. 
    Good luck!
