Re: Si joint who has it can you help me out?
How was your diagnosis of SI joint pain confirmed? Sometimes it's tough to do this unless you have actually had an SI joint nerve block. That being said, let's assume it is the SI Joint. For people with intermittent, acute flare-ups, a nerve block w/cortisone may be all that is needed to calm it back down. If this does not work then a nerve ablation is the next level up option. Given your lack of insurance, the above could be difficult if not impossible. If you have not any any physical therapy this may be a place to start. You could pay for the initial visit and explain that because you have no insurance you would like an in-home exercise/rehabilitation program. Then if you are able to tolerate the exercises, I would give it a month or two to really start helping. Hope this is helpful. Oh, and also, you could schedule a visit with your GP and maybe be kept comfortable with some pain medication. I take both Lyrica and Nucynta for my SI joint problems. I have had all the fancy treatments and the most effective intervention has been a good, and I stress, GOOD, physical therapist.
