About 1 1/2 yrs ago, I went camping and developed hip pain in my right hip. I thought it was from sleeping on a thin mattress, (I don't have much fat on my hips). The pain never got better, it has gotten progressivly worse, to the point where I can't sleep on my right side. It bothers to get up after I have sat also. One doctor thought it was bursitis but when I was sent to get a cortisone shot, when the dr went to inject the needle my leg shot off the table and he said that shouldn't happen and was in the wrong spot for bursitis? At times my left hip is sore also but not as bad. Any dr I mention this too just ignores it. I also have back problems that no dr seems to be able to diaginois either. They all seem to think the pain is in my head !!!!! The worst pain in my back is inbetween my sholder blades, the whole muscle (or whatever it is) will spasm just by touching my back between my sholder blades. I supposedly have 2 bulging disks in my neck. Lately my lower back has become very painful also. I've had mri's but the drs say they don't see anything to be causing me sooooo much pain. They make me feel like i'm crazy! The pain is for real, all I want is to feel normal again. I just turned 40, average weight and female. Any advice would be appreciated.
