Surprise, surprise: more arthritis
I returned to the hip/knee orthopedist last month, received an injection into my left hip. Problem is, it only eliminated my limping (new symptom), pain pretty much the same, add in tightness, sore front of knees, can't sleep on that side, the other side acting up, sitting is painful. Previously, it would greatly help. I have had issues with my left hip, on/off since DS was born in '94. One of the reasons I gave up my former car (stick shift) was to baby my joints. I noticed an improvement immediately with my left hip once I did.
Another work up today included Xrays-yup, I officially have arthritis bilaterally in my hips. Off for a MRI Fri (this is how I am spending my "vacation") and I return to him on Mon. Some days, I feel like I am 100 years old.
