Hi I have Si joint pain or piriformis,sharp pain in back, stabbing pain in thigh and calf it doesn't travel. now stabbing pain in front ankle,related?

Sciatica?: In my experience, "SI joint" and "Piriformis" syndromes are commonly over-diagnosed by mistake.

From your description, I wonder if you might have a pinched L5 nerve in your lumbar spine. http://www.spine-health.com/conditions/spine-anatomy/all-about-l5-s1-lumbosacral-joint ...Read more

Pyroformis syndrome: This could be pyroformis syndrome, which is caused by the body attempting to compensate for a difference in leg-length. This often responds very well to osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation. I would suggest seeking out a local do or chiropracter who treats low back pain. Osteopathic manipulation is much gentler, but chiropractic is often much easier to find. Both help. ...Read more
