Hi all, its long but PLZ read!
Thought id give a little update from my last post "just want to know" and ask a few more questions as my situation has changed a bit!! I am yet to have an MRI scan, but decided to get a referral to a sports doctor after being told my pain was "groin strain" for 2years!!!?? The doc examined me, and then attempted to tell me thAt due to having no soreness while coughing or sneezing, and no distinct pain on my Pubic symphysis, that theres no way its OP. For about 2 and a half months, my symptoms have changed and im now getting all these weird clicking and popping sounds coming from both my hips. I get a high pitched "click" from both randomly a lot throughout the day, and dull "pop" sounds too. Whenever i lift my legs to the side is a weird popping noise and a kind of griinding. Anyone else get these?? Is it labral tears?? Im actually really worried about these! :S
The doctor then after telling me i had no OP, went on to tell me that he thinks i have one of 2 things, apophysitis, which is due to the growth pates in my pelvis, (that are still growing at nearly 18??) or labral tears in both hips. He directed me to have 6 weeks off any running at all, and with this, if the pain was to subside it would be apophysitis. This is really hard due to me wanting to play netball all the time! BUT after me telling him, that i already last year to the beginning of this year had 6 months rest of any sport, he began to tell me that he suspects it may be a "Labral Tear" rather than apophysitis?!?
Iv researched labral tears and it kind of sounds like my symptoms..Now im really worried. He says i can have an MRI to show a labral tear, or have 6 weeks rest 1st to see if its apophysitis. What should i do? To make the situation worse, i am a worrier, and feel a fair bit of anxiety about my problem
Please someone tell me their story!
