Pain around the ilium area. It started about 24 hours ago and has been slowly progressing (scale : 4). Constipation (almost always).Also feeling weak.

Ilium or ileum?: This is a little confusing. The ilium is part of the bony structure of the pelvis. The ileum is part of the intestines. From the other part of your question I suspect you mean the ileum. If so then this pain could be caused from constipation. It could however be something more serious. I would try to relieve the constipation and if the pain does not resolve then I would seek medical care ASAP. ...Read more

What is it called when one ilium is rotated up and forward and the other rotated back and down? Pelvic torsion?

What is it called when one ilium is rotated up and forward and the other rotated back and down? Pelvic torsion?

SI joint strain: Judging from your question, it sounds like you might have sacro-ilium joint dysfunction. This can happen incidentally due to misalignment along the the lower part of the spine in relation to the plane of the hips. Therefore, one side can "pull" which causes the rotation. Usually physical therapy can help strengthen the weaker side and re-align the hips if someone is experiencing soreness and pain. ...Read more

Could a lesion within the right medial ilium bone cause pain in my hip just below my back and into the right side of my bottom?

Could a lesion within the right medial ilium bone cause pain in my hip just below my back and into the right side of my bottom?

Yes, possibly: Your ilium is the large wing-shaped pelvic bone. The medial portion of your ilium is the part closer to your spine. A lesion in your ilium could cause pain in your back and buttock area, but so could many other things including a compressed nerve (from a bulging disc), a tight piriformis muscle, or inflammation in your sacroiliac joint. It sounds like your pain "refers", making me think nerve. ...Read more

I have severe LB/glute pain primarily on left side. L I noticed a (fluid like) lump on sacrum bilaterally but larger on left. What could this be?

Get a scan: The differential diagnosis would include fat necrosis, partial or full disc herniation, sacrococcygeal mass, cutaneous tumors, and poorly exercised paraspinal muscles.
