Hi I am new here, I started having pains in my left hip about 2 weeks ago but pretty much ignored it. Then last week all of a sudden it was like my one side was on fire. It felt like a toothache in my bones, my left leg was numb, and the pain was so bad I collapsed. I haven't been able to go to work (no sick pay of course) and I finally got an appt with my doctor for tomorrow. I was reading some of the posts and it is very helpful to see people who feel the same way. Hopefully we will all feel better!
