Sacrum Arthritis?

Pain is between S1 and coccyx on top of the spine. Anyone relate? Recent epidural to left of sacrum helped a while, but after shoveling in my garden, the pain at this site has been unbearable at times. Only when I am asleep on Ambien can I get relief. Thanks! 



  • Get to an orthopedic dr and get diagnosed! My pain started out in that area back in 2011... I ended up getting all kinds of treatments in my SI joints, hips lower back.... but the CAUSE of the problem was L5-S1 the entire time!!  Dont self diagnose and write it off... not when there are much easier ways of fixing it if you catch it early. I am 17 days post of from having a total disc replacement and its not fun
