Uneven antervertion? Raise one side of wedge temporarily?

Hello everyone,
Thanks for this forum it is really helpful!

I have been dealing with left (gradually worsened over time) hip, buttock, leg and backpain (nothing wrong with my back and pelvis according to specialists and mri) for 8 years now. After 18 physiotherapists and everything else you can think of, I came across the Gokhale method and bought the book. Love it so far and already feel small benefits after a couple of days! Can't wait for my stretch-pillow to arrive!

Question: I always have the feeling that my left pelvis does not want to antevert as much (yet) as the right side. Looking at my back in the mirror I find about 2cm asymmetry in the 'lower back dimples', left is lower and my top left buttock seems lower as well. i know I should not focus on the asymmetry as much, but thought I mention it.

Could you temporarily raise the wedge for one side? I tried and it does seem to make it more comfortable ( i feel muscles go out of spasm more), but I do not want to end up creating more problems for myself of course!
So is this an idea for in the beginning or better not?

Thanks! Have a nice day!
