I'm going through the same thing, though I'm finally starting to get better. With me it preceded some very heavy rain, so I guess I'm a weather predictor now! Anyway, I actually got my sacroileitis cured for almost thirteen years from a sincle cortisone shot into the joint. I thought it would hurt, but it didn't and it fixed me up really good for a long time. I've tried to get another shot in the joint recently, but no one will do them, just shots in the bum, which don't do the same thing as getting it right in the joint, probably have to see someone special I guess for that, maybe a sports medicine doc, anyway the shot is awesome. I didn't realize how much it affected my sleep as well. My horses used to get shots in the hocks, and glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM and they do definitely work in horses. I hope you feel better soon. I'll have to check into Ginny's ointment. Ginny, if you read this can you give us the name of the ointment?
