Sacroiliac joint: Sounds like your sacroiliac joint may be the cause of your pain. This type of Pain may be caused by a fall if you landed on your buttocks. Physical therapy and a small steroid injection can help significantly. Find a week qualified pain specialist in your area for proper evaluation. My opinion is bad on your symptoms only so you need proper evaluation to rule out anything else. Good luck.

Sacroilitis: Diagnosis: Your description is most likely a lumbar muscle strain, myofascial pain and or sacroiliac ligament strain. Home Treatment: Choose between Advil (ibuprofen) or IB, but don't take both. Follow dosage directions for all medications. Family Doctor: You would benefit from a trial of 'trigger point injections' and sacroiliac ligament injections. Call to make sure they do it. Chiropractic could help.
