For years, when I lie on a flat surface and relax, my left foot stays upright. While my right foot/leg falls over when relaxed. So when I look down towards my feet, even though I am completely relaxed and straight, left foot pointed up..right foot slightly over pointing away (like normal, Lol) When I try to push over my left foot to make it relax it starts to hurt through my leg all the way up to my left side of hip. Something is keeping it from relaxing. Tendon? muscle? Any of your brillant ideas would be very appreciated. cool nyone else had this problem? This might be why I have had pain in my left hips for years now. It just gets worse over the years. I tried to test how much rotation I can do on my left leg compared to my right. I even pushed it a little too much, but it feels like there is something keeping me from having the range of motion like my other one. When I lie down flat, I tried lifting my leg off the ground and over to the left side. Can not go out as far as my right one can. confused And it is a lot easier for my right leg) The Dr. already did an MRI on my lower spine. He didnt get the hips, though. Should I ask for that? or is there another test that could be done. Or should I ask for a referral to a specialist? I don't think the Dr. I see is taking me seriously. I told him about the problems with my leg and could that be causing my hip pain. He is still stuck on bursitis. nono I know I have that, because I did fall 2 years ago right on my left hip.) But I don't think it causes all the other weirdness. Thank you so much for your help. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks all of you for listening!!
