I have become worst with pain and I do not no what else to do. I have done everything my doctor has ask of me. I have so many symptoms but my blood work comes back ok, the only thing that came back was vit D was low (8).

However this was my hip doctor and he did not tell me anything about this said I need to go to another do that he did not do SIJ. I have been going through this for 2 years. but it has gotten worse since this nov, as to where I cannot even work anymore. Please help.

The findings of your MRI scan are suggestive of mild inflammatory changes in the area. Taking pain killers, muscle relaxants and regular hot fomentation is likely to help you,.
