Re: upper right buttock pain
Been a while, hope everyone is well. Lately, I've been getting this upper center buttock pain. I don't believe its sciatica because I usually feel it a bit lower. This pain has been constant for about a week, sometimes worse than others, and sometimes feels like it locks up and get shooting pains. I don't know what may have caused this to happen but it started after sitting down for about 3 hours straight. It's always something. I am thinking its the SI joints but I have no idea I'm not a DR lol. I need to make an appt, just any input would be nice. Thanks![/QUOTE]
Hi pubbies, When i get SI joint pain it always seems that it is "making much ado about nothing" because it hurts so bad with nothing surgically wrong! There are little indentions on either side of the spinal columnn about the level of the upper hip & that is where my si joints are & where they hurt. I also get grabbing pains like it catches, feels like what i imagine arthritis to feel like, a sharp ache? & I get them injected with numbing agent & a steroid by the NS or pain dr right in the office visit not under fluoroscopy. I have a history of IBD, ulcers & otc or prescription NSAIDS are contraindicated for me now but i used to take ibuprofen for a week & it helped so much. If i was unsure if it was the SI joint, like if this was the first or second time for me to have this I would make a dr appt to be diagnosed & treated. I hope it gets better for you pubbies.
