Good BLOODCOVENANT that you find a doctor that explain how the body works. Also that you are going to an Iyengar instructor. Listen to your body is essential in Yoga, because everyone is different and with different needs. Hope the anti-inflamatory medicine and the physical therapy work asap. Take care.

Second dr appt was so very helpful. I should mention this is a new primary care doctor for me. I'm just getting to know him. He explained so many things about hip, back, joint, and sciatica problems. We also talked about listening to my body. I have a hard time knowing when I'm pushing too hard. He wanted me to keep taking anti-inflammatory & exercise. That is working. I also am starting to work with a iyengar teacher. She is helping me listen to my body.
Thank you for you help.

Yes, I was in severe pain, especially when it radiated down the front of my right leg. The fact that the pain didn't go down the back of my leg evidently ruled out sciatica. The doctor used my description of the pain, the onset and severity and then had me stand with my back to her and could see something was out of line. Listen to your body, do what feels as if it is relieving the pain and pressure.

I was just diagnosed with this in late June. The pain went down the front of my right leg. The MD said the SI joint was out of whack and pressing on a nerve. It took about 4-5 weeks of 2x a week physical therapy, a round of steroids and 3 -4 weeks of rest. However, I am now back actively practicing yoga with a few modifications which are changing almost weekly. PT said I should be fully back by 9/15... just a few weeks away. Listen to your PT.... I didn't want to stop my yoga practice, but I came back to a better practice than ever.
My mother had Sciatica, it was from her buttock and down her left leg, she could not walk properly. The doctor diagnosed it by doing some test, she had to go on a special diet and exercise also cutting out certain foods, it took her 6 weeks to recover from it and in the meantime she lost weight. She is a lot better now and she has recovered well, this was a few years ago and she hasnt had it since.
I hope you are recovering and I am sure you are going to be ok. diet and exercise helps. Good luck
Have any of you had this? The dr thought it was sciatica. From what I've read on Yoga Journal the symptoms seem to fit SI Joint Pain more. The pain goes from buttock to groin rather than down the back on my leg.
How did you find out what it was? I read it was hard to diagnoses.
