Hi everyone,
 
Wonder if anyone can help. I have had CFS for about 10 months and have been feeling a whole lot better recently.. even managed to go back to work :-)
 
HOWEVER!!! On Monday i started having really bad pain in my left hip! The sort where you try and sleep and it just doesn't happen and you could cry! I have these shooting pains all down my leg and am struggling to sit down, stand up , walk.. Fair to say this hasn't been helping the fatigue... and even had to take time of work from my new job.. suffice to say that is going to go down like a lead balloon.
 
I went to the Dr's on Monday who believes that it is probably just the cfs (which also believes is in patients heads and that by the power of positive thinking we can all magically get better - but thats another story!!) He told me just to put a heat pack on and go home
 
Well today i ended up in A&E because the pain got so bad. They think I might have an infection in my hip and have given me antibiotics for a few days.
 
Could any of this be part of my cfs? To be honest my symptoms are so varied that I no longer know what it is normal or what is part of the cfs
 
Can anyone help?

Hi Sarah. I'm sorry about your pain - it sounds terrible. It can be hard to tell what is cfs and what might be something else. As a rule of thumb I think it's a good idea to get any new or worsened symptoms checked out by your doctor to rule out anything new. I hope your hip improves soon.

Take care

Hi Sarah,

What are your other symptoms? It sounds like your doctor is less than ideal; so it seems quite possible your CFS diagnosis may not be right.
