Hi all. I am new to this forum and would like to introduce myself to you.
My name is Christine, 42 years old and a survivor of breast cancer.
I started getting pain in my left hip about a year ago. Worse when I walked a fare amount. Painful walking upstairs. Couldn’t lay comfortably on that side. Pain radiated to my groin area as well. I sometimes got a pinching pain when I sneezed.
Went to GP in December who arranged for me to have an x-ray also mentioned it to my oncologist in January and they arranged for me to have a bone scan. Both came back clear. The pain continued so I went back to my GP and they tried me on various pain reliefs. Tried ibuprofen and tramadol together (tramadol made me rough) and then tried naproxen & co-codamol together but nothing helped the pain. She then referred me to an orthopaedic surgeon who thinks it is nothing to do with my hip but my back. He is arranging for another bone scan because of my history with cancer. A few people I know have mentioned sciatica could be problem. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this sort of hip pain and what the cause of theirs was.
Look forward to hearing from anyone :-)
