I am in my late 30s and when i was 16 injured my labrum cartilage.
I had a bad gait since then. Corrected for a year by surgery and re-torn later and both hips have damaged cartilage and later the surgeon said a hole in my left bone causing arthritis, I think he said rheumatoid arthritis. It feels like my hips are very heavy, and not smooth to walk. I have little niggly pains in both hips each day. I have more problems if carrying weight.
I am worried because recently i thought i had an autoimmune disease in graves but maybe wrong diagnosis. I heard rheumatoid arthritis is an auotimmune disease and can cause graves disease.
I wondered is it likely to be rheumatoid form because its overuse injury through sport.
What causes it? i mean as its an autoimmune disease.
Are their any cures or anything in the horizon ?
What kinds of natural substances can i take to keep it from causing more damage?
In the future i am holding out that they can invent some stem cell cartilage to insert into the hip and possible bone stem cell treatment. I am not sure it works at the moment without sufficifient cartilage already their. I have about 60 percent left in both hips my surgeon said and he said that the muscle alone would be good enough to fix my bad gait but after all his exercises i can say it isnt enough for me.
I appreciate any insights
