First, please forgive any issue with my spelling/grammer/etc because of all the pain meds they have me on this afternoon.
Long story short - Severel years ago I injured my low back/Si joint and ended up in the hospital for several days. It just 'gave out' when my daughter called my name and I twisted her direction. After many Xrays, MRI's, etc they couldn't find any major issues other than disc issues ( bulges, etc ). They gave me a walker and sent me home. I couldn't walk for the next month and could not even get in the shower without the help of my wife.
After several months of rehab ( core work, medro dose packs, etc, etc ) the spine Dr[s] said that my insurance would not approve any further treatment and released me. This was because my insurance kept fighting them over disagrams ( spelling? ) and other testing.
This above was about five years ago...
After I was able to return to another job ( part time ) and purchased insurance on my own I still had the same issue ( unable to stand, sit, or do anything for very long periods of time. This is when We found a really good physical therapist that said I have a unstable pelvis and I've been working with him for the last two years. He and my current DR have sent me to several other Dr's with the hope of some type of long term result.
During this time I hired a personal trainer to help with my core work. I have always been very active, but this injury has caused me to avoid many exercises. With the help of my trainer we 'worked around' my SI joint until we got the area strong enough for direct treatment. I was able to do one minute side planks, one hour workouts on core exercises - just as long as we didn't "twist" anything or any one legged exercises( found this out the hard way ) One legged bridges are OK - weird!
During this whole training event - my back would hold up very well until I returned to work. This is when the issue started big time ( I drove a truck three days a week ) and every monday my physical therapist would have to get my sacrum out of torsion/side bend mode. I'd be sore the next day but after we'd do some more core work the pain would go away and I'd just be sore.
Because of the issues with my work causing my pelvic issue to flare up - my physical therapist and DR told me to find another jon that I can be more active because this seemed to help. I did just that
After two months at my current job I'm writing this as they set up more MRI's, a physiatrist, etc. My issue has remained silent long enough
Every day before work I must have my SI joint checked to see if it's in place and before my days off work. About three weeks Ago I didn't feel very good in the morning ( my back muscle are breathing! ) So, i did what has worked for some time = gym. This time it won! I was warming up( leg sways ) and I attepted to get off the mat and BUM! I was stuck on the ground unable to move. They helped me get to my physical therapist and they said I had another sacraL torsion.
Now this issue is out of control! Every time I start to stretch, walk, sit - my inner thighs lock up and my butt muscles spasms. They look like ballons but painful. My stomach muscle are locking up causing me to dang near pass ou- along with severe groin pain.
Please help!!!!!!!!! I have three kids that need me to work!
The MRI will be monday
physiatrist? They will call monday and see if they can get me in sooner than 6 weeks.
