Hey everyone, I'm new on here and this is my first post. So I had been getting a lot of hip pain, across my back and down my left leg. Mainly on and off for years but past 6 months a lot worse. Im only 31 but I couldn't get off the floor on my own, out of the bath on my own or walk sometimes without limping.
I saw my gp and he wanted me to have an x-ray which I did. Now I have been told I have osteoarthritis in my hip and have been referred to the lower limb people. Not sure what to make of it as I'm happy that I now know what it is but confused as why I have it at my age? As was my gp. So I don't know what is going to happen next? Or how I can control my pain as still in a lot of it?
I'm also finding that a lot of people just do not believe me. Just wanted someone to talk about it.
