Now, I'm possibly just empathising with Andy Murray...but....
I'm in sudden groin/hip pain as of yesterday afternoon. I am limping and shouting out when I move my leg in just the wrong position, though there is no redness, no swelling and it's not hot. I did absolutely nothing to cause this as far as I can tell and was walking perfectly normally around Tesco only hours before. 10 days ago blood tests showed my inflammation markers to be completely fine.
I've got UCTD and have yet to enter the world of pain in the joints more than unilateral knuckle pain and swelling and some wrist pain (also unilateral) that tends to be more weak than painful. Both of those were eradicated (or in remission) once I started Hydroxy a year ago.
I am wondering if this is referred pain because I've been having an awful time with my lower right back for the last few months and now that my hip/groin is like this, I can hardly feel my back. It started as an ache of about 2-3 /10 on the pain scale and developed to a 6 by Christmas. I spoke to my Rheumatology pharmacist about it while it was a 2-3 and he went through all the red flag questions (like bowel, urinary changes and numbness - none of those), but at that time I was certain the pain was in my middle lower back, not specific to my right side. I now know it's been the right side all along. And now it is in my right hip -- and boy is it ever!
I suspect I'm flaring a bit because I was sweating yesterday, there's been spotty fatigue and I had a rash (for the first time in months) 2 weeks ago. But maybe it's just something else entirely?
Has this kind of suddenness of pain happened to any of you? Any ideas?
