I need help. I have RA & a few other diagnoses. I have a left hip impingement that needs to be reconstructed or replaced. So when I started have pain in my left pubic bone back in September, I sought the help of an ortho. Nearly 11 months later, I am still in pain. I was told that I probably have a stress fracture in my left inferior pubic ramus. I broke it on the recumbant bike early February. The day before Memorial Day I got a stress fracture in my right pubic ramus. I felt the pop. I was supposed to get an MRI last Thursday & a nerve block this coming Monday. I can not afford either. There isn't a promise that the nerve block will even work so I'm not too bummed. I've been seeing a physical medicine ortho since June 7th. He has me on a 10mcg per hour pain patch that has been helping some. I just don't understand why the doctors can't just fix me. My pubic bones hurt to the touch yet NONE of the doctors I have been to have touched my pubic bones. I've been to the PCP, 3 orthos & a PT. I haven't been able to work since May. I just wanna give up. Anyone else have this pubic pain problem? Thanks!
