Also new, feel silly..I did read a few posts that were the same..almost. Make it short, left shoulder just under the blade shoots pain into my left hip, killer pain! Right hip goes crazy too! Right hip if i apply weight, there is no pain, lifting leg kills me, keeps me in bed and not walking. Then it is gone? Many x rays no doc has seen anything. The pain is bad. A real bad example is...I sound like I have tourets (bad spelling) because i cry in pain and swear at work, home everywhere it just hurts so bad. A knife in me but worse. awake at night too, that pain I cant move feeling :(
Any ideas?

No one is permitted to offer any diagnosis based on your symptoms. You should always consult a physician for diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition/symptoms.
If you have not consulted with a board certified spine surgeon, I would suggest that you start there. Xrays only show alignment and fractures, or tumors within the bone.

    Hi Jaybee. Have you only seen your GP so far? Who ordered the X-rays? I'd start with a referral to a board certified spine surgeon (not saying you need surgery. He will get you on the right treatment path.) you really need an MRI & possibly other diagnostic tests. Until you have your pain generators identified everyone is just guessing what could be wrong. I'm sorry. Best of luck.
