Saw the lastest consultant (orthopaedic surgeon) in my diagnosis marathon and apparently I have some bursitis in my hip (seen on MRI) which explains why I can't lie on my left side and have trouble walking uphill and up the stairs. I think it's all building up to be a set of minor conditions. I guess because they've been untreated with either physio or meds for such a long time they have created a whole region of pain.
So annoyed with rheumatologist I saw over a year ago and asked "was it my hip?" Could all have been sorted then with a steroid injection.
This leads me to wonder if the other buttock pain is another inflamed bursa in that region.
Orthopaedic surgeon will not be treating me as he thinks most of my pain is coming from gynae stuff and soft tissue issues.
Finally getting somewhere.
