I began having severe pain beginning in my iliac crest

I began having severe pain beginning in my iliac crest and was completely unable to walk or stand for weeks. I saw an orthopedic surgeon who took numerous x-rays and administered a cortisone injection into my hip bursa. He also ordered an MRI for suspected pelvic stress fx. It was negative and on followup he asked if I had pain anywhere else. I told him my internal organs were also painful. He recommended I be evaluated at the ER. I was in a great deal of pain from sitting upright and just wanted to lay down so I made an appointment with a gastroenterologist. I was scheduled for lab work, CT scan and had an endoscopy and colonoscopy performed, both of which were negative. I am still having pain in my iliac crest and in the groin area of my pelvis and have been unable to walk, sit upright or stand for any length of time. The pain is on the left side lower than my ribs and I also have pain in the right side in the same area as the left. I have been unable to perform my activities of daily living for two months now. Any suggestions?

I am experiencing sudden tearing pain outer left hip nearer to the iliac crest that is sharp and radiates around to the left buttock. It is difficult to walk and especially go up stairs. I do have RA and osteoarthritis. Any ideas what is could be and who I should see? There was a hematoma associated with it but has gone away.

I wear a radio on my waistband, over my belt, at work. I wear it in the area of my left posterior iliac crest. The other day I bent over to pick something up and felt a sharp zinging pain over my left iliac crest that shot across my back towards my right iliac crest. Now I have a constant pain over the area of my left iliac crest. it doesn t radiate anywhere else. It s almost intolerable while lying down or sitting. It s still there when I m standing but much less severe. It also feels better when I arch my torso (my back curved inward, abdomen pushed out in front of my body). Any thoughts on what I might have injured and/or suggestion on what I should do to improve how I feel?
