Ever since October 2009 I have had severe hip pain. I have been limping for more than a year and a half over this past year I have gone to physical therapy for seven months. It helps with ROM however it does not help with the pain. I have been continously passed on from specialist to specialist with no answers. The last specialist I am seeing has said he is excited some one sent him a legitimate case. I have had many test done trying to figure out what is going on:
MRI/MRI arthrogram/Cortisone Injection/X-Ray/Bone Density/numerous blood tests.All have not given us any results.I have tried many medications to help with the pain:Ultram/Flexeril/Neurotin/Celebrex/Ibuprofen/Acetominophen/Lyrica/Savella/Elavil still nothing has helped. I also have sharp pain in my arms and legs off and at times I have a hard time keeping fluids down and on and just do not have the stamina I used to. I am only 23. I am dedicated to going to the gym even though it hurts. No matter what I do the pain is still there. I have difficulty walking up stairs. It is hard going from being an athlete to not being able to do what I love. I have severe gait issues where my left foot goes inward in to compensate for the pain. I did not know if anyone out there has any ideas of things I can look into or try. At this point I am searching for any ideas or suggestions!
