I have recently been diagnosed with hip arthritis by my GP.
I'm not completely convinced that's what it is as the symptoms seem to have become really bad in a very short space of time.
I have had an issue in my R hip for years (I am almost 51) where it has been fine all the time apart from after walking long distances up hills, steps etc. It would then start to hurt and become stiff.
In the last few months, it has gotten a lot worse and now I am in almost constant discomfort. If I walk for more than a few minutes, it becomes increasingly uncomfortable and any longer than about 15 minutes, I am almost limping and have quite a bit of pain/stiffness. It also hurts to lie on my R side in bed.
My GP examined me but didn't feel X rays were needed and he has referred me to physio.
Does this sound like arthritis??
If it does, how has it turned me from a fit, fast walking person into what feels like an almost disabled one in a matter of months?
Any help/advice really appreciated.
