I've been having terrible pain in my right hip for about 8 months. Whenever it starts to feel a little better I do something that makes it hurt unbearably. Valium is the only think I've used that seems to take the edge off.

I've tried PT, other muscle relaxers, magnesium spray, ice, heat, numerous pain killers, kratom, and anti inflammatories. I even wear a special belt around my hips but it doesn't seem to help much. It's at the point where it hurts 24/7 and it almost impossible to drive a car or sleep.

Has anyone dealt with this or know how to relieve some of the pain? Thanks

Sean - are you still treating the infection(s)?

That's what might resolve it - is getting rid of whichever infection is causing it.

Have you tried one of those rollers?

Have you been seen an orthopedic doc? Maybe you need a MRI.

I stopped BVT recently but it hurt long before that. I'll be starting LDN soon. I'm also treating mast cell and POTS.

The last time I went to the orthopedic he told me I was crazy and that it was all in my head.

I've dealt with that type of extreme pain for years on both hips/ legs, and now I'm much better. Have written numerous posts on it in the past, but it might look to time consuming to some people.

I think you have to reach a point where its obvious that no one can help you before one does what I did, self learn / treat with occasional help from certain pt types. Still reaching for that last 10 percent, but get stronger every few weeks.

There are many factors in hip pain, I learned a little here and there from "body pt / chiro professionals", you-tube, and trying / proving things on myself.

One confusing areas though is determining if the pain is from : joints, tendons, muscle or nerves. Nerves is the tough one, takes time and I recently asked what supplements help heal them. That said, some nerve issues are mechanical in nature, meaning its a muscle pinching on the nerve, or stuck to it, which can be physically corrected to some extent.

Basically, I controlled /managed / improved it with lyme, then after ABX it was easier to make improvements but would not make great progress all on its own unless I kept doing more self PT.

I started loosening then strengthening my whole body at the core and went outward. The fitness roller which girlie asked about is a good first step, but wont fix a hip by itself.

I am more than happy to explain my whole "protocol" and reasoning behind it to anyone that is seriously interested, I understand it might not be for everyone, because it sounds like a lot of work. It is a lot of trial and error too, but free once you understand the principles. PT is also trial and error, and you pay even if they cant fix it.

I too have Lymes disease and Bartinella, along with a lot of hip pain, and saw your posts..

What does BVT stand for, and what about LDN and POTS..?

Also, does anyone know why these diseases/disorders cause hip pain, and more importantly, how to get rid of it?

Thanks

Hi EarthMuffinAnnie - cute name!

BVT = Bee Venom Therapy (using live bees to sting you - initially based on the success of a woman healing her very advanced state of Lyme disease when she walked into a bee hive accidentally and was stung many times)

LDN = Low Dose Naltrexone Naltrexone in higher doses is used to help people who are addicted to opioids get off them. In low doses it can regulate the immune system.

POTS = Post Orthostatic Tachyardia Syndrome - It is an autonomic nervous system dysfunction - causing rapid pulse from sitting to standing, and sometimes a drop in blood pressure . You can also have other symptoms like low exercise tolerance..
Sometimes POTS comes with Lyme Disease

My joint pain and inflammation reliever of choice is CurcumEvail by Designs for Health 2 x /day, or its cheaper twin, Bio-Curcumin Plus by Adaptogen Research. Takes a few days to kick in, but is very helpful.
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.

I believe bartonella is the main one that causes the hip pain. It affects the bone, bone marrow, tissue and muscle around the bones, and entire vascular system. It seems to be the one that causes the most PAIN.

Get rid of bartonella and the pain should stop. Japanese knotweed is crucial for protecting endothelial cells. Red root is also important for bartonella and should alleviate some symptoms. You will need more to actually treat the infection.

What about seeing a chiropractor. I had really bad neck pain and I could feel the lymph nodes very swollen at the base of my skull. For a long time I though it was infections.
But after seeing a chiropractor the pain was gone and the lymph nodes were improving to the point I never have an issue with them now.
We lose muscle tone being sick and sedatary for so long.

Good point. I started going to a chiropractor about 4 or 5 years ago. I was already sick but didn't know I had Lyme. I had a lot of body pain and my lower back was always hurting. It totally stopped all the pain until I started having horrible Lyme/co symptoms 3 years ago. But I still get regular monthly adjustments. It's so worth it if it's not something you're already doing. My very first adjustment was the best one I've ever had. I never had as dramatic a change from any since. It certainly made a believer out of me. I've only been to one chiropractor. The one I go to does the adjustments by hand, not with a machine.
