My mother has had pains in her leg and back since the age of 42. She was told it was arthritis but there wasn't anything they could do. She's now 47. for around 6 weeks she's had A LOT of pain in her hips and knees which make it extremely hard to walk. She can just about go to the shop and back but is still extremely painful, and as she starts work In two weeks it's going to be a struggle as sharp can hardly walk without being in a lot of pain. She's always had problems being able to lift her legs and can't open them very wide at all.
My mother is quite slim and she's always walking. She hardly rests and her job requires her to stay on her feet too. At the age of 47, could she really have such a severe case of osteoarthritis? Or could it be something different? Can physiotherapy help? What can she do to get better? I'm really against her being on drugs and she may not be able to have a hip surgery at a young age which I'm fully against anyway.
