My hip is very painful, doctors didn’t find anything?
Hi Doctors my name is (…) (41yrs) from SA. My problem is my Hip it is very painful.I went to a GP two weeks ago the last week I was admitted.The Doctors did X-rays,MRI and scans.they could find nothing wrong.
I don’t remember hurting myself or anything.I need some advice please.The three days in hospital did not help either.The pain simply wont go away and I don’t feel any better.
Thanking you in advance.
Really i need some more details to understand the problem ..
what aggravates the pain?
what makes it better?
what does it feel like?
is there any numbness or other sensation?
do u have pain in your back ?
u said you had xray and mri?which part?
Please let me know the answers so i can help you get it
if the investigations have been normal,then there seems to be no major problem.
just wanted to know whether the mri was done of the hip region or back ?
pyriformis syndrome is difficult to be diagnosed by these investigations.
other possibily is radiating pain from spine to hip,or knee to hip.
you can take a local steroid injection shot at the painful area.
THIS MAY BE DUE TO OVERLOADING OF THE HIP JOINT DUE TO YOUR PROFESSION. OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THAT THE PAIN MAY BE POSITIONAL RELATED TO THE EXTREMES OF VARIOUS POSITIONS DUE TO WEAK HIP MUSCLES.
HIP MUSCLE STRENGHTHENING EXERCISES WILL REDUCE THE PAIN
