Anyone else have this strange symptom?  It feels as though my leg pops out of the socket at the hip joint and the pain is in the front crease of thigh groin.  Scares the life out of me when it happens.  Has happened to both legs now but only a few time.  Just happened though and is aching.  I wonder if it is a symptom similar to MS gait problems.

My right hip has been aching, so I really think it is Lyme related . I never had this before my diagnosis. Also my right ankle will ache and the foot kinda drops.

I know for me quite a bit of the issues I have with my hips, legs and ankles is when the muscles in my lower back are spasming and they end up pulling disks out of place so that they are bulging and pressing on the nerves. I'm dealing with a lot of muscle spasms lately so I've got that going on right now in my left leg, as well as my upper back/shoulders area.

I will use heat on the area of my back that is spasming and that seems to help - unless it's been going on for a while, then I need to reduce the swelling so I go for the ice pack then.

I've had weird feelings around my left hip, but I never really considered why it felt that way. Maybe it's the feeling that you're speaking of. Quite often I have the feeling of something being out of the socket: shoulders, knees, right elbow, knuckles. I've been to a chiropractor, and we've talked about my joint pain. He has told me that my right shoulder is misplaced in the socket, and that there's also a possibility that my right knee is misplaced in the socket. At least I know why I have limited mobility and hear cracking/popping.

I think we need to find the cause of these things. Then we have a chance to change things. Does anyone have any other theories about what may be causing these things to happen? It seems to me that mine is caused by muscles spasming and cramping, causing disks in my back to move and bulge, pinching nerves and making certain joints go all whacky.

Knowing the cause would be wonderful. Over the 6+ years and being tested over and over again - nothing ever comes up. Everything is structurally sound and responsive. The only thing I can think of for me is my right shoulder down. Right before everything started happening, my shoulder popped out and back into the socket on its own. I've figured it never settled back into place properly and is pushing down on something it wouldn't normally. However, I never understood why over time the rest of my body's been slowly "breaking down"... I'm hoping this is a lyme thing - just because it would be good to know that there's a reason for why everything's going on because I know I'm not crazy.

Although it's all too easy to blamed everything on TBI's, I believe that these things are because of our TBI's. I've had several joints checked out and get the same answers - all is structurally sound,/can't find anything wrong.

I am open to other possibilities though.

I'm not blaming anything on anything as I still don't know what's wrong. The joints, muscles, and nerves are all fine. This also makes me wonder about all the twitching...

Whenallelsefails,
I wasn't saying that you were blaming anything on Lyme, I was the one doing that!! Lyme is so complicated! It can affect the joints, muscles and nerves without causing any damage sometimes. Other times - like for me - it can create damage in joints and nerves, and even the muscles. Fortunately for me my muscles are not badly affected other than the muscle cramps and spasms, but my fingers and toes are twisting and turning and I have the neuropathy. I often wonder if it's due to the specific strain(s) of Lyme that I have.

Congrats Springsjean!!! I am seriously looking forward to that day myself!!!

Traveler,
I never thought that. I merely just wrote what I was thinking about. I'm sorry to hear that there is actual physical damage. Although, I've always wondered how'd things would be if there was actual damage - proof that there was something wrong. It's seriously has gotten to the point that people start to think I'm crazy or faking it (especially because the on/off range of mobility).

Springsjean,
That is very good news!
