Hi there - New here. 51-y-o female with chronic right hip pain/down leg into foot associated with low back pain. Went to a chiropractor and he told me I had osteoarthritis in L1 through L5 and S1 and also in C4 through C6. Ha - never had any problems in my life. Always active. Just BOOM - got out of bed 1 morning with the hip pain. This started 3 months ago. It was not too bad at first. I could work it out. But now the pain is different. It is 24/7, chronic, throbbing, and now causing some spastic jerks and going into the other leg. Have been doing the ice/heat, lying of floor with legs up. All the herbs, diet, menthol topicals, everything I can think of. My insides are sick from all the ibuprofen I have to take. Scared to go to hospital. Go back to chiropractor? He wanted $5400 up front. No insurance.
