I was in a car accident three years ago, I was sitting on the passenger side. Since then it's been an awful trip. In pain all the time, at first we thought it was my lower back. I went for physiotherapy (PT) for 6 months and came home in tears. I have seen 4 different doctors who just said it's all in my head. Finally I went to the pain clinic after 1 year of shots and more PT. The doctor said he can't help any more. It's time to look into sacroiliac joint fusion (that surgery). I have been doing a lot of research on this and it sounds good. The pain goes down both legs and in my buttocks both of them. I have been given a belt to wear, TENS unit, and lots of pain pills. But I still think ice and rest is the best. The accident only lasted 3 seconds, and my life has been terrible ever since.

I have been dealing with the pain of this debilitating sacroiliac joint dysfunction for a year and over the last year have found nothing helps better than light and modified yoga, walking on straight ground and swimming regularly. I take strong pain medicines every day that barely help with the pain. I cannot work now because I tend to have flair ups when I bend too much, and then end up in bed for two weeks. It hurts to drive and sit up for extended periods of time but with modification of activities the pain is bearable. I have heard that chiropractors help but was in a lot of pain after my visits, the same with physiotherapy. I hope this helps, thank you to all who post here, you remind me I am not alone in my pain.
