Brief Answer: Consult an orthopaedician. Detailed Answer: Hi, It may be a part of an inflammatory arthritic condition known as ankylosing spondolytis. You can take antiinflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin , others) and acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) to relieve pain and inflammation associated with sacroiliitis. Modifying or avoiding the types of activities that aggravate your pain may help reduce the inflammation in your sacroiliac joints. Proper posture is important. Alternating ice and heat may help relieve sacroiliac pain. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician proper diagnosis and management. It is not related to eating something. In rare cases it could be due to infection.
