I guess I am really "new" to this pain. It started about 4 months ago and has gotten just about unbearable at times. That is the only reason I am still going on..because it comes and goes. When it comes on,I literally have to breathe through it. I have had MRI,and it showed Nerve compression of L4,L5,S1 Facet joint Syndrome, DDD( of course). Appt with neuro in 2 weeks. Anyone else have this INTENSE your pelvis area? When sitting down after standing or walking is the worst.....And I got no meds!Ice helps only while on it!
