I get pain in my lower back when my sacro-ileitis is acting up. It will hurt from just above my waist all the way to the hip joint. Sounds like this could be what you're experiencing. If I put my fingers about
an inch above my crease and slide it across about
halfway to the side, I'll find a very sore spot, and if I massage it really hard it will ease the pain.
A trick my PT taught me is to lie on your back and flex your leg on that side up against your chest with the hip and knee both bent. Grab it with your hands and pull it in tight, then let it bounce out. Do that several times. It really seems to help. Ab stretching and strengthening exercises help me also. You might try some gentle stretching to see if that helps you.

Thanks for the suggestion Judy - I'm going to try it out tonight. I've had the pain on my left side consistently since January - in both the front and back, with the swelling and minimal to no relief. Does this feeling ever go away completely?
