And the verdict is...

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

Well, my chiropractor called it a SI Joint sprain, but it's really an inflammation. The picture show exactly where my pain the the butt is, but on my left side.

As much as I am glad to have this figured out, it also means that I need to take it easy for a while, definitely no or little exercise. Not exactly what I want; I need to exercise some, if only to regulate my stress a bit. However, I want to make certain that this heals properly, and that I can maintain it so that it doesn't happen again.

Short term pain for long term gain. Or so I tell myself.

I'm sad, I know.

Did your doc say anything about wearing an SI Belt, or if that would even help? You can get them at some pharmacies, and if your doctor gives you a script, you can claim it.
Hope you feel better soon.
