The diagnosis of SI joint disorder is probably wrong. Almost all SI joint pain originates from the discs at L4-S1 or nerve compression in the lumbar spine.

You note a “pinched nerve” at L3-4 but do not note what is causing the nerve compression or what side the compression is on.

Most likely, this is a typical case of radiculopathy from a compressed nerve. Your symptoms seem to match this disorder. You need to investigate further with a meticulous spine surgeon and I bet you will find the answer to this pain.
