Hello, I'm 20, female, and have been having hip problems for the last 6 months-ish.
I've always had funny hips, they click, sometimes feel like they move out of the socket, and sometimes there is an odd nerve-type pain where I have to lie flat on the floor and wait for (what feels like) the bone to drop back into place with a god awful pop.
But recently it's gotten much worse and the aching, burning pain lasts for days, sometimes weeks. I can't sleep, struggle to walk without waddling, and am generally miserable. Both sitting and lying down make it a million times worse.
Blood results came back clear and apparently my X-rays were fine. Now painkillers have just stopped working it seems. I was told I'd get some PT over the summer but that never happened.
I'm now back at my university doctors and plan to try and find an answer again.
Anyone know what could possibly be the issue? Or any suggestions on how I actually get someone to take me seriously?
Thank you in advance,
A very sleep deprived, fed up student.
