It has been 3 years since I have the recurring stabbing pain in my right Hip. It comes and goes on its own and usually stays for 3 days. During the same my back also gets stiff and I am unable to move (sleep, walk or sit) comfortably. Often it gets so worse that I have to take help from my husband to stand or to change side while sleeping.

We have consulted many doctors in last three years including physicians, neurologists, orthopedics, gynecologists but to no help. They have taken my MRI, CT scan, more than 2 dozens of blood tests, X-rays but nothing concrete has come. In X-Rays a slight injury shows in my hip joint. Recently, the neurologist has prescribed few pain killers, calcium and neurobion but, again it doesn't seem to help.

I had an accident 6 years back wherein I fell over my right side and got my arm broken.

I am desperate to know what is wrong with my body cause when this happens for three days I am unable to do anything.

Please help!

  • Hi, the polite words are "you are having a bit of hassle" :confused:I suspect you have not had a reply so far because of what you have been through.Pain killers are very personal, this why so many different types are advertised on television and many times more are available as prescription only !I would deffinetely try different pain killers.You might be supprised at simple standard NSAID pain killers (but I am not talking about those advertised on TV).One person I met had aurtheritus on only a small section of the knee joint, which damaged the cartlidge, causing extreme pain and joint locking. Only when a certain action was carried out for certain durations, caused the damage and thus the tremendous pain (which took days to recover).With most "scans" there are different types, which means sometimes things can get missed.Under prescription, you can get a higher dose of ibuprofen which often helps joints, BUT from experience, it often takes 3 to 7 days before the benefit is felt. Possibly a taking a over the counter full dose, then the higher dose when the pain happens, might speed up the help.In a way, all the test have been helpfull, because at least you are able to rule out so many things - YES I do realise you would rather have found out by now.Good luck with your recoveryTerry
