I have had epidurals, facet joint injections, nerve blocks and RFA's but have never had the sacroiliac joint injections. I have a lot of low back pain due to degeneration of L5-S1, I have arthritis in the facet joints as well and a bulge in L3-L4. None of these procedures have given much relief so I was wondering about the sacroiliac joints. My pain tends to be mostly localized in the lower back and upper buttock area. I do have some pain down both legs and in the left heel and right top of my foot but mostly it is there in that low back/buttock area. Anybody have these sacroiliac joint injections and had good relief? Thanks!
Yes. I have had several different types of injections as well like you I have had problems with my L4-L5 and L5-S1. I have unfortunately had five surgeries for fusions and don't recommend that it was the biggest mistake I ever made some people have to but if you can avoid it please do. These injections helped me for a long time until I made the mistake and changed my doctor. The injections are painful I won't lie to you but some doctors most I imagine will sedate you some before they do them so it isn't too bad and you don't remember much, if anything depending on what they use to sedate you with. Hope this helps you some and good luck, marjorie zych
Yes. 2 weeks ago. It helped(after 1 week) the "electrical shock" pain but the dull pain is a constant. Sitting, standing up, walking sucks!! I see the doc this next week. Yes my pain is mostly in the low back & left buttock. I have spasms at the waistline. Standing up from a sitting position is SLOW!
I’m wondering how bad the pain is for an SI injection. I have had several nerve blocks and many many surgeries, last one being last year,and the blocks never helped. I have a degenerative spine and my primary doctor is referring me to his partner for the injection. I guess my primary doctor doesn’t do the SI Injections, so I’m nervous that it’s being done by someone other than my own doctor. I’m hoping the pain is no worse than them. Could someone who’s had them let me know. Very nervous
