How can I get comfortable in Sacroiliitis ?

I was diagnosed with sacroiliitis and I have this horribly annoying feeling that my legs are being constricted, like there is a tensor bandage wound much to tight around them I also have sharp pains in my shoulders and hips. I am taking Celebrex for inflamation and pain. I was told to avoid walking and stairs. However the only time the pain and constriction is completely gone is while walking. The pain is tollerable but the feeling of constriction is incredible uncomfortable and makes sleeping and sitting impossible. is this constriction part of the sacroiliitis or is it possible the sacroiliitis caused by something else? What questions should I ask at my next Dr s appt.? How can I get comfortable?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be suffering from Ankylosing Spondylitis, or bamboo spine disease which is characterised by Sacroilitis, shoulder and spine enthesitis and arthritis. There is stiffness of joints in the morning which is relieved on movement. Swimming, Yoga are the best exercises to relieve the symptoms of this disease. Jogging is not recommended though. This is an autoimmune disease which can be associated with aortic insufficiency, eye inflammation. NSAIDs like Celebrex will give some relief though new drugs like Infliximab, Etanercept which are TNF antibodies work best. Kindly discuss your risks, management of risks, treatment options available for you.
