Re: Pelvic pain and Siatica
Discogram's a good idea...really gives you good info.
My personal problem was that all 3 causes of my pain were so close to each other that it was confounding my drs.
I have/had (IDET seems to be working to-date) an Annular Tear L3-4 (no radiation out from source), SI Joint pain (no clue what's causing that), and Sciatica (pinched by my Piriformis muscle and not a disc).
So, in a nutshell, go for the discogram...and get your drs to think "outside the box" if you're not finding out what the cause of your pain is.
Good luck, and please keep us posted!
