Hi everyone, I have herniated discs at L4/L5 and L5/S1 with spondylolithesis at 2 levels as well. Have been having increasing groin, hip and front of thigh pain. Had an MRA of my hip and was told I do have a labral tear, Dr wants me to try 6 wks of PT before discussing arthroscopic hip surgery. I am fine with this, however the thigh pain is really becoming unbearable, by the early afternoon I am hobbling and come home from work in tears. I have been getting epidurals every few months at L5/ S1 for the back of the leg sciatic pain I take an anti- inflammatory 3x a day, and take tramadol as needed for fibromyalgia pain..but it is doing nothing for the front leg or hip pain. I feel like at this point I need some pain medication...it's been 3 months since the hip pain started....but who do I ask? The ortho I saw for my hip? Or the Neuro I see for my back? I'm not sure which is causing this recent pain? All I know is that I can't take much more of it...to the point where I just gave my notice at work after 8 years because I can't function enough to do my job..
