Hello everyone, 1st time post here.
Ok, so about 6 months ago I was on a long walk. I had been pretty sedentary over the winter, so this was a bit out of the norm for me. Anyhow, about 3 miles into it, my right groin started hurting. As I walked back home, the pain grew slowly worse.
After a couple of months of rest, it hadn't got any better. I could walk up/down stairs without pain, but if walking on flat ground it was very uncomfortable and the area with be sensitive for a couple of days.And now my right hip really hurts too. And my left hip is beginning to hurt as well when I walk. It's getting worse!!
- at about the 2 month mark, doc sent me to physical therapy. No improvement after 6 weeks.
- next had MRI. Found compressed nerve between L4 & L5.
- was giving oral steroids, and then an epideral shot. No improvement
- Was seen by a Neurologist, he wasn't sure so he sent me to a Orthopedic surgeon. They also took x-ray of hip
- Orthopedic guy spent a whole 3 minutes with me. Said there was nothing wrong with my hip and diagnosed me with a sports hernia and said nothing can heal this but time.
Really? So do I just give up at this point? Does this seem right to anyone else? 6 months of groin/hip pain that is slowly getting worse, and I should give it more time?!
Any suggestion on course of action? Should I give it more "time"?
