SI joint pain and numbness in legs

Started by Mrs.Treat on 03/24/2017 8:21pm

Im 53 and a couple years ago i was lying on my bed sorya on my side up on my elbow and sorta coughed not a full blown cough. Anyhow i felt this crack at the nottom of my spine and heard it. I knew something was very wrong. It was i couldnt walk for about four months. As it got better i could walk barely, but the real problem is i cant pick up anything and carry it. Theres a lot of pressure in my lower back. Also my legs go numb all the way to my toes. I cant run. When im lying on my back i cant lift my pelvis very easy. Do other people have the same effects from their sacrom or si joint? Does it ever get better?

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to post about your SI joint pain.

You mention having numbness down to your toes. Have you spoken to your doctor about this symptom? Symptoms like numbness, weakness, tingling are neurological symptoms and may signal a need for image testing to understand the full extend of your pain.
