I have been suffering with sacroiliac joint pain for a year in a half. I went throught shots p.t. and nothing seems to take the pain away. I have to quit work and I can't walk for more than 15 minutes. I'm never comfortable sitting, standing, lying down. The Doctors say there is nothing else they can do for me but surger again and they do no recommend it. I'm on pills 24/7 tring to keep my pain down to a 4. I go no where and do nothing. I feel beaten down with this constant pain. Is there any secret to living with this pain/View Thread
