The Femoral Head on both legs for some reason is deformed and when I move them they impinge on the cartilage (Labrum) which lines the joint. If left untreated I will need a both hips replaced.
It can cause severe hip pain which radiates into the groin, low back pain, and can even affect the knee
It's difficult to diagnose which is why it's taken so long for me to get answers. It could also be that several years ago not much was known about
the condition and not much could be done to correct it.
Thankfully they can treat it today.
At this point though I'm not sure what it's going to require to get this fixed. I'm scheduled to have a MRI Arthrogram so hopefully that will shed more light on what's going on
