Si joint: Could be an sacroiliac joint problem, especially if you have it while standing or walking, or on any other mechanical movements, see pain specialist, or have your physiotherapist perform 5 different diagnostic tests, if 3 will be positive you still need to see a pain specialist, and may be need it to be injected with cortisone. Take Ibuprofen or Celebrex (celecoxib) in a mean time.
