I have hypermobile Ehler Danlos Syndrome, over a year ago I injured my left SI joint at work. I have had all sorts of PT, injections, medications. Only thing that worked was a shot directly into the SI joint, for about a week and then the pain was back. Medial branch block did not work, pain managment Doctor wanted to try SI rhizotomy, insurance would not cover it. Now I am looking at a trial of spinal cord stim. Has anyone used a SCS for SI joint pain and what was the outcome?
