I had an x ray last year and was told I have arthritis in my hip that is not bad enough for a replacement. I accepted this I knew it wasn't that bad. That was it no other information was forthcoming. I don't even know the what type I have. This past month it has become very painful I can't see a GP as they do phone consultations and then decide if you can see them, I was concentrating on the pain symptoms and stupidly forgot to ask, what I need to know is, is in normal to have pain in the groin, buttock, hip, thigh, knee and calf? I also have lots of bruising. it had become very painful walking and resting. Lying down in bed leads to sleepless nights. i have been given Co Codamol and referral to Physio.
