  Hi everyone,
 This is my first post on this part of the board. I have a question for you all. I have been having issues with my right hip.
 Little history. As a kid i have allways been able to dislocate my hips. As a kid with a sick sense of humor, i would pop my hips out all time to freak out my friends. Now, i am in my 40s my hips are paying me back. I did have my hips looked at 15+ years ago, after my hip pop out while water skiing. They did a CT. she told me i have shallow sockets. My question is. When i go to walk after sitting cross legged, the pain is awefull for about 5 steps then it starts to get better. Could this be arthritis or maybe a tandon problem????

Hi,it could be the onset of arthritis.I know about ten years before being diagnosed with crohns I would complain about my joints hurting and I was like you I would sit for a few minutes and then get up and have pain in my hip and left knee and with in a few minutes the pain would go away.But after being diagnosed with crohns we blamed my joint pain on the fact that crohns xauses joint pain.Well it was not long I started swelling up really bad and was in a wheel chair for a year because it was to painfull to walk.I was sent to a rheumatolagist and had test done and I was told that I did indeed have arthritis three types RA,OA,AS.I would sugessed that if this keep''s up to see a Rheumatolagist so you can be tested to see if you have some typ of arhtritis.
