I'm having the most horrendous pains in my hips!
I have sero neg RA and Fibromyalgia and am on a cocktail of meds inc hydroxychloraquine and leflunomide. I have had steroid injections in both hips before! But when I explained where the pain was I was told it wasn't my hip joint (thankfully) but my tendons, so had them injected and felt fab again! That was 2yrs ago.
4 days ago I walked downstairs and felt pain in my groin - right side and heard a twang! Ouch I thought, that blummin hurt but as I was going out spending my nans money with my mum and nan I took a few paracetamol and off we went! We didnt walk far at all, my nan is 90 and was quicker than me!
Since then I've been taking paracetamol and codine every 4 hrs and can't move without hurting. The pain makes me feel sick and all fuzzy, (if that makes sense to anyone!) I have tried to walk it off but can't. Walking downstairs is OK but going up is a different matter. I feel like a horse has kicked me in both buttocks! Right side is worse. Sleeping is OK when meds have kicked in but the pain wakes me.
Is this true hip joint pain? A long winded explanation but I like to give you all the facts!
Thanks for reading ( feel better already after getting my worries off my chest)
