I am a 38 year old female chronic hip/lower back pain for 5 years now. Finally after a few years of suffering went to primary Dr she said I had a weak core try yoga. Year later went back to her she does ultra sound and checks organs thinks it's female related. Had hystorectomy now a year later still suffering. The hip pain has gotten worse it wakes me at night. I have developed a limp. Random toe and heel numbness.I also get pains in my groin that are excruitiating (sp) it has lasted up to week and I seriously can't walk. I feel pain in my hip just sitting. It's all on my right side. Went to her again 3 weeks ago and she finally sent me for hip x ray and lumbar mri. With these results she sent me a referal to physical therapy? Should'nt I see a back Dr? Half the stuff on this I don't even get.
