Hip and Low Back Pain
Doctor did x-rays which showed degenerative subchondral sclerosis with irregularity about the pubic symphysis. Yet, it wasn’t until I Iost 65 pounds that I started having problems. I stay active and do yard work and other things without a lot of trouble.
However, when I wake up at night and try to move, something catches in my left hip and the pain goes up into my lower spine and down my left leg. I have to work the pain out before I can stand up. I’ve tried several sleeping positions and a pillow between the knees doesn’t help.
Doctor suggested therapy but he doesn’t seem to know what’s, wrong. Can therapy help me and if so, what kind of therapy? I’d like to know what’s going on and what I can do about it. Thanks, Barbara.
