sacroiliac
Does anyone have pain across the top of their thigh when standing up?  I have intense pain. I have not confirmed the diagnosis yet. I go for injection on 6/6. Also have pain running down back of thigh and I can feel everything shift when lying on side. Just want to know if I am the only one.

Hi and welcome to the Spinal Cord C/D forum.

I am sure there are others with a similar pain to urs....I do not have what u r describing....And I am sure if u have a MRI or Xray u may find out just what is going on...

U mentioned u can feel shifting when u lay on ur side....is it the joints?

Yes have had x-rays and mri. It's not the hip. I do have a collapsed disc. I have the injection in the sacroiliac scheduled for the 6/6.

I do have shifting when I lie down. Not sure which joint that will be.

  U may want to check if u have a connective tissue disorder that may weaken the joints that they shift like that...Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome....check it out and be sure.....it may not be, but worth looking into just in case.

Not sure I should help out since I am a NJ Devils fan!

Anyway, x-ray nor MRI will let you know if you have SI joint dysfunction. You need an injection with contrast and lidocaine. My images after the dye injection showed it all pool up below the joint. I had been rear ended and it tore the capsules and ligaments. I had intense low back pain, down the butt cheeks to mid hamstring. Both sides are now fused with 3 triangular rods and worked wonders on the left side, still dealing with issues on right side.

Hope this helps...
Take care, -rob
