Thanks for replying. Nice to hear from you! Hope your SI joint injection gave you some relief.
Well, my doctor also thought at first it was SI joint pain, so you hit the nail right on the head!
However, then he did a test with my leg that determined it was NOT SI joint pain.
And, since I made this post, I started doing a different set of McKenzie exercises which completely abolished the pain and numbness in my leg, hooray!!!! [img]http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif[/img]
Unfortunately, I still have pain in my left buttock that I think is referred nerve pain. Now, if only I knew the anatomy of the nerve roots around L5-S1 to figure out which nerve is being impinged on!!!
I had an MRI last week and am waiting for the report. Maybe that will shed a little more light on the situation.
Thanks again and I hope you are doing well! Keep us posted.
