So over the last 2 years I have been dealing with debilitating pain in my lower back and right hip. I was always focused on the lower back as that is what has been bothering me for over 2 decades now. I had a right hip injection yesterday afternoon as part of some diagnostic attempts to locate my pain. Today I feel 80% relief and couldn't be happier. While I do realize that the medicine they injected my hip with will wear off, at least we are on the right track it seems. Next step is to figure out what is wrong with my right hip and see if that can be fixed. Just an update as to how I'm doing and possibly an avenue for some people who deal with lower back pain that is a mystery. Hips, I guess, can cause all sorts of problems in the lower back that hide what is really wrong. Now I do have issues with my lower back to be sure, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and some early onset arthritis, but the worst of what I have been dealing with for 2 years now seems to be stemming from my right hip. So happy today as I haven't felt this good in a long time. Wish me luck!!!!
