Hi I’m new here and I don’t think I’ve posted on this bit....sorry if I have..not wanting to bore anyone.
I have scoliosis from childhood and have lived with it. Sometimes I’m good, sometimes not but have been living with pain for at least 10 years. I’m now 50. After my hysterectomy 5 months ago...my lower back pain increased and I started to get really bad hip and groin pain. My hip was also quite obviously swollen.
The physio suggest and X-ray and to my surprise my hips are fine but I have mild osteo in the sacroiliac joint. Because of my back history and that fact that I am finding sitting, bending, standing increasingly difficult I’ve opted for an MRI so that I can see a spinal consultant.
I consider myself pretty good with pain but I must admit...I regularly need to take time out to stretch out on the bed and relieve the pain. Looking forward to anyone who can help me on my journey out there.
