Hello, I'm 18 years old and for about a year now have been dealing with a painful and uncomfortable hip condition. When I was born nobody seen a problem with my hips but when I was around 2 I started walking and people noticed that I had a limp. I was operated on twice between the ages 3-5yrs. My first operation didn't go well so they decided to operate a second time to shave the femoral head so it fits again. At the age of 12 I went to the doctors again because of discomfort I was feeling. I had an X-ray and had two different opinions off of the doctors, one said that there was bone shedding leading to bones in the blood stream, the other doctor said they couldn't see a thing (this doctor was the one who operated on me.) So, I was refered to physio which didn't help me and now I'm dealing with much worse circumstances. I've had the feeling of numb aches and harsh stings in my hip, leg and groin area. My left hip clicks a lot with movement but I wouldn't say it's painful. I've had another X-ray recently and they refered me to have an arthrogram and MRI, I'm waiting for the results now. I'm missing a lot of school and because of my age it's frustrating, I want to do much more with my life. Does this sound like Perthes disease to you? Please let me know
