I am 27 years old living in the UK
When i was a baby i had clicky hips (not sure what proper word for this is) and when i reached 17 started doing healthcare work, lots on my feet & 12 hour shifts etc, from these shifts caused soreness in my right hip but nothing major. 2 years ago i began working at a hospital which is more fast paced on your feet alot etc (which i loved) october 2017 i collapsed in agony with my hip, couldnt walk, was admitted for 5 days on a ward on strong pain killers. Since then i was diagnosed with joint narrowing where the cartalidge in my hip socket has gone which is resulting in pain, in febuary i had a steroid injection to numb the area which only lasted for around 3 weeks. Which resulted back to lots of pain, went to my consultant who ive seen a few times, for him to say not going to do a hip replacement for 12 months due to my age i’ll review you in 4 months. Im now in agony & completely stuck on what to do. I suffer with depression & anxiety anyway & can feel it creeping in. Have spent the day in tears which is why im reaching out to see if anyone knows what i can do, tried hydro therapy it hurts. Seen my GP can only refer me back into the nhs to the same consultant, taking codeine 30mg naproxin 500mg & paracetamol, And anti depressants.
Any help i will be forever grateful
