I have been suffering with lower back/pelvic pain for the past two years. I have been seeing NHS doctors at UCL H in London as well as their physiotherapists for the last 18 months. The process has been incredibly slow and my patience has been running very thin as I have been in continual pain during that period. Two weeks ago I finally got to see the main consultant. He said most likely the problem is with my SI joint. They are going to run a detailed MRI on my S I joint and are sending me for a diagnostic pain injection into the joint. That at least it is progress of the sort.
However, given the amount of time that I've spent with them getting nowhere, I'm beginning to lose confidence. Even if they manage to get to a diagnosis, will they actually be able to treat it properly? For that reason I am trying to find who in the UK are the specialists in this area. If I have to pay for this privately now I'm ready to do so. I just need to know who are the best people. Can anybody help by recommending someone?
