    The fall/impact was 6 months ago. I’ve responded to all the PT and recovered a great deal except this nagging, sometimes very painful lower back hip and foot pain (none of which had before the impact)The MRI is next week. I know I am getting ahead of myself but I am wondering: 1. What are some possible scenarios given my symptoms of chronic bilateral (but worse on the left) and transient (depending on my position)lower back hip and bilateral foot pain? 2. Do my wide SI jionts (four babies) play into any of this? 3. Does the lower lumbar MRI deal/ reveal related soft tissue issues? (My glutes & pirifomis seems to be the region of pain as much as the lower back and SI joints.) Thank you for your response.

    The possibilities for your symptoms are almost endless. You need a good spine surgeon to go over a thorough history and physical examination and then review your studies. The area of pain at the piriformis is almost never from piriformis disorders but referral pain.

    The MRI will be helpful but not by itself. See a good spine surgeon.
