Pain in the bones of pelvis only when i sit

Posted , 5 users are following.

Good morning,

I would like your help. I have pains in the bones of the pelvis when I sit. It hurts only when I sit, like a bruise and I can not sit. The pain started when a physiotherapist made me strong massage with "sticks of massage". I did 15 intense treatments and then the pain began. I had some other pains in the musculoskeletal system, haunch, back (long story), and i did tests (MRI, bone scan, hematology, rheumatology, I took inflammatory pills and pills for neuropathic pain; they did not do anything, I took them five months). I succeed  with the help of another physiotherapist and gym, swimming, to face greatly the musculoskeletal pains, besides pain in the bones when i sit. Medical examinations are all clean, but the pain when I sit continues. Life has restricted me incredibly, because i can't sit. Although I got weight (4 kg), i am 1.66m, 54kg and 31 years old, I did not see any difference. I try to put soft pad when I sit, but nothing. I don't know how to face it. I can not work, I can not go out. Has anyone any idea where to go? Although I went to several orthopedists-rheumatologists, they could not give me an explanation.Thank you in advance!!!

    Hi Mellisanthi;  Just a small question.....did you have MRI/scans/x-rays etc prior to pain in pelvis starting, or after pains?   I ask this as the one diagnosis that always comes to mind of someone "who hurts when sitting", After an accident, is a fracture (even hair-line fracture) of the Pelvis....so if pain has come on after the treatment, and you've been previously, on ant-inflamortries etc, am wondering if this is the cause of your pain?   Naturally, if these ALL came after the onset of the Pain, then No..for surely a radiologist/Ortho would have seen same??....Bron

      Hi Bron,

      Thank you for your answer. I had MRI and bone scan (in lie position) prior and after my pain started in pelvis. I haven't done x-rays and i took the ant-inflamortries, before the pain started in pelvis, before the violent treatment. If there is a hair-line fracture, with which special medical examination could be seen? Do you know?? Here in Greece, nobody knows how to deal it. Thank you for your help.

      Hi fractures usually only show on x-rays, as MRI's scan the organs/tissues for damage/trauma to these; whereas x-rays show damage to bones only.   The only real tretment known for fractured pelvis is REST....most people can take Little steps with walking..  and standing is fine.....but definately can't sit, as this is when ALL body weight is taken on the pelvis.....If you still feel this is your only problem (plus some back pain), then it would be good idea to x-ray pelvis, and then rest for about 6 weeks on a hard/firm bed.......Bron  good luck

      Hi Bron,

      Thank you very much for your help. I will do x-ray pelvis, because there might be a fracture as you said and i will continue not to sit. For almost two years I sit a little and this is my big question, how after so long time the pain has not passed. Thank you again for your help. Have a nice day.

    I gather you do not have either PMR and'or GCA.

    I would think you need to see an Orthopaedic Consultant.

    In the meantime it is just possible that the Bowen Technique might be able to help you.  You and the Bowen person will know after three sessions whether it is for you or not.  It is practically painless as well.

      Hi Joe,

      When i started to have pains in buttocks and waist (before 2,5years) doctors couldn't give me an explanation. The orthopedics told me that it is rheumatology and rheumatologist that it is orthopedic. I started physiotherapy and the physiotherapist made me strong massage with "sticks of massage" on the sitting bones (15 violent physiotherapies). After these physiotherapies i started to pain on my sitting bones, only when i sit. Before the physiotherapy, i didn't pain on my sitting bones. After physiotherapy i got worse, i had additional pains. I continued to search and before a year until today with the help of a physiotherapist - chiropractor and gym-swimming, we faced largely the initial pains in the buttock and the waist. He told that there was a "turning-rotation" in the pelvis, after an old accident in waterslides (2009). Now i can't face the pains on my bones of pelvis-sitting bones, that the first physiotherapist caused me with the violent physiotherapies. Almost 2 years, i can't sit and my life has been destroyed. I don't what to do. When i sit, i feel pain like i have bruises. Sorry for my big reply...
