Hi,Anita,
You have not mentioned your age,As after 40 one gets degenerative changes in the joints leading to stiffness of the joints giving rise to pain.
As there is tenderness at si joint it may be due to trauma.
You can do back extension exercise,slow walking,swimming etc which keep your joint flexible and less pain.
You can do hot fomentation at the joint and apply local pain reliever cream.
ok and bye.

Hello, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Myofasical Pain Syndrome. I have had two 360 ALIF followed by MVA five weeks after both. Now I have bilateral SI joint Pain and Tailbone pain on a chronic level. I have sciatica and DDD, Spondoylitis, bone spur at the fusion level, mild effacement of the ventral CSF, budging disc, a fatty deposit at the thoracic 10/11 level. Constant and chronic pain now for 14 years. There are some other factors as well, but for me to have had this since I was 21 until now,36, it concerns me if I could ever get better or have a child. What is your opinion as far as treatments?

I was diagnosed several years ago with degenerative arthritis of the SI joints, bilaterally. My lower back/buttocks pain has increased significantly so my new doctor ordered a lumbar spine MRI. Does the lumbar spine MRI even show the SI joints? it appears to me that it stops at the L/S line and goes no further down into the sacro area, therefore this test isn t even really looking at the area which is causing my problem?

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.
