I was not sure if this was the right forum for this.I have had multiple surgeries.However I had my L5 S1 fused in 2007. I started having like erratic off and on pain in the right hip. This has gone on awhile and increased when I had five surgery's on my right foot because I wore those boot casts that were like totally heavy. Well over this last year it got worse. Now a month and a half it has gone from a 5 to a 9 and 10 on the pain scale. I have been in bed for three days now and in severe pain.
I went to my doctors they did X rays of the hip it showed mild degenerate joint disease, otherwise it was normal. I am thinking how in the world can that be. The pain is in the groin area and wraps around to the outside hip joint down to my knee. It is a horrible burning sensation with any movement. Everything is uncomfortable. Can they see better with an MRI what is going in in there?
Does the Xray really show everything?
My doctor gave me an injection but it did not do anything but cause more pain. She is sending me to an Orthopedic..
