Inability to turn left leg inwards while straight, could not bend left leg inwards. Almost impossible to get a sock on until I stretched the back of my left leg out(2weeks) so I could lean over with left leg straight out and get it on. Walked with left leg turned outward and with limp. Felt like something caught from inner left SI joint down through front groin at large tendon and down inner thigh to left knee. Over time walking deteriorated hip joint because each step caused me to twist in my hip area. left leg contracted until I walked hunched over. LOTS of pain. Leaned heavily on cane in left hand. Had hip replaced and surgeon corrected left foot turnout. 4 months later left SI joint corrected it self and bulge mostly went away. Left leg then felt like the whole thing is turned inwards. unable to put weight on it at first. Walked heavily on cane in right hand. Had hard ridge of tissue inner left thigh and tightness. Felt "something" riding over "something" else in left groin next to large tendon that was "caught" in a bad position constantly but would also flip over to a "worse" position and cause a lot more pain. Finally 3 1/2 years later a massage was able to massage left inner thigh vigorously and it swelled up and was very tender but the next day in the pool during a kick backwards movement it RELEASED and in 2-3 months had resolved. Continue with left thigh rotated inward feeling, left SI pain and inability to walk very far. Have shop where there are shopping carts and lean on them.

Please can someone tell me what happened????
