I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in the left hip and shoulder six months ago with a future consultation "in one year". I am 71 yrs old. My walking is slow and careful as I am afraid my leg might give way and I sometimes get a strong pain in the left groin. Sleeping on the left side is uncomfortable.
Tonight in bed I am experiencing pain all down my left leg and find it difficult to sleep.
I have taken 2 paracetamol but the pain is still there. Wonder if it is serious?
