Sacroiliitis is an inflammation of one or both of your sacroiliac joints, situated where your lower back and hips link. Sacroiliitis can cause pain in your butts or lower back, and can prolong down one or both legs. Sacroiliitis can be tough to detect, because it can be mistaken for other root causes of low back pain. Similar to other conditions that cause chronic pain, sacroiliitis can result in clinical depression and sleeplessness.
