I'm 39 and I've had worsening hip pain for over 5 months now. Blood tests showed high ESR, which has now settled. I have a raised rhematic marker and also the rhematic anti body. The pain is all around my hips, groin and lower back. It's worse if I walk or move a lot and at night - I can no longer sleep on my back for example. The pain varies from dull/burning to sharp, which sometimes travels down my legs. It's on both sides.
My grandmother had severe RA.
The next stage in my assessment is an ultra-sound of my hips.
I have some questions if I may. Does my story sound like anyone else's? I know it's a fairly short time to present OA does this likely rule it out? Has anyone been diagnosed via ultrasound?
Thank you so much for any advice or help.
