Oh Binki. All I can say is that I have had the same pain for almost two months. Only mine starts in the middle of my butt muscle, goes into my hip and down my leg. The sensation is 'burning and gnawing' pain. My thigh aches as does my knee and shin. It's only on the right side. And..it wakes me up at night and is worse when I sit or lay down. I figured it was some kind of sciatica but I don't know. Another Fibro Thrill.
I have had two bad falls since easter...once off my son's pool deck and another on a wet soapy floor in a public restroom. Let's just say that it didn't help this hip-thing. One suggestion I have is try to balance your weight evenly, if at all possible with your cane...I have been gimping so badly my left side is taking all the weight and is beginning to get sore.
I hope you get to the bottom of it. I don't have health insurance so I haven't gone to the Rhuemy. MRI's cost a fortune and I'm sure that's what he'll want me to do.
feel better...bed buddie, rest,...you know the drill!
Hi Lori - I have not had that but just want you to know I am thinking about you and hope that this will start to settle down for you soon!
Wow ladies, I am so sorry for all the pain and suffering. Sometimes it is more than we think we can bare, yet somehow we pull through it. Wow are we amazing or what??! You came to the right place for support,huh? I hope both of you feel better soon.
Thinking of you. Jules
