I just signed up to this forum. I read a bunch of threads and feel that I am right at home. I must say that you all have made me feel a little better.
Lately I've been really wondering if I've gone loco . I have pain in my hip, especially in the low buttock area. The funny thing is though is if I rest (lay down on the couch or bed) the pain seems to almost go away, that is until I get up and start walking around, then the pain will increase until it hurts and I have to rest again. By the end of the day, all I want to do is plop in bed and not move.
This has been going on for almost 4 months now following a car accident. I was the passenger. Anyways since then I've had Chiropractic and the other thereapy with only getting a little better! I then went and had X-rays that showed nothing wrong, so I continued with thereapy. Got tired of that and ordered a MRI of the lower back, that also came back negative, so I did more thereapy. I then had a Hip MRI that showed nothing wrong! So once again i did more therapy! Finally I decided about 2 weeks ago that therapy wasn't doing much and took it upon myself to call a bone doc in Providence, he saw me, said it might be Acetub...... joint tear (sorry not sure exactly the name of the joint). He ordered an arthrogram and MRI for me which I went and had done this afternoon. Just to note after having this done i don't think I can take any more tests, this one was just too much! It doesn't actually take a really long time to do the test, but even 10-15 minutes of trying to lay still is just too much, I have to move something or it will drive me insane (the stiffness pain).
My sanity is pretty much on the line here, my boss kinda looks at me like I'm faking it, and I think other people do too, or maybe I'm just imagining it. I guess I'd be looking at people funny if multiple test came back negative too, but now being on the other side I see things in a different light!
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I'm talking about the boss and other people looking at you funny or is this just all in my head?
Sorry this has been a really long post, but I guess the first one usually is, good luck to everyone here, I feel your pain, literally
