Chronic Pain sufferer. Right SI Joint started to grind a few years ago and then I had pain deep in my pelvis, like a kink or something was catching. Now I have developed a severe boring pain in my right buttock (not Sciatica, MRI scan) and pain in my lateral right thigh with extreme tension and feels like my leg will "give out". The tension is so great that it feels like the bone will snap or a muscle will tear. I don't have all of the symptoms every day but when they all present I have problems with weight bearing movement and have trouble walking. Pain scale can reach 8-10. Ibuprofen, tylenol 3, aleve and robaxacet do not alleviate the pain when it is at it's worst.I have started to limp everyday. I have always had the feeling that something was out of alignment between my SI Jt and the muscles and or bones in my pelvis. I have had a full hysterectomy, so no female organs that would cause this problem. I am at a standstill with my doctor and don't know where to go from here. Can someone help me please! Soon I think I will lose my job, walk with a cane then a walker and then a wheelchair.

Does your lower back hurt getting out of bed, but get looser/better as the day wears on? Please google "Rh Negative Autoimmune" and you will find my site with related research in the new members area.
