I'm 28 year old, and just recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my right hip. I feel like my future has been cut short. I constantly experience pain in the thigh, and the groin. When I wake up in the morning, my right leg feels discomft, damped,and stiff - like bones, stacking on top of bones, and I have to force my leg to move up slowly.
I also have ankolysing spondylitis. I am very frustrated, all those years, when i told my local Gps about this sharp pain in my leg - they would conclude it's due to my ankolying spondylitis disease. without taking proper x-rays back then, my condition is quite severe - loss of cartilage in my hip, causing bone-touching-bone.
I am not fat - infact, I am skinny -very skinny because i have hyperthyroidism, so no matter how much i eat, i won't get fat. i'm still wondering whether it's because i am under-noursihed, and carry heavy things, and jumping high when i was a kid, contribted to the lost of cartilage at a young age....
