I am a 21 year old that has experienced major hip pain in both hips since the age of 15. Some background: I am very lean. 5'10 120lbs. I have been told I am very hypermobile, especially through my legs. I have also experienced growth plate issues in my knees and feet. I am very athletic and have been participating in sports, long distance running, soccer, basketball, tennis, since I can remember. Sadly I used to be a good runner.
Don't know if this is normal, but when I lay on my back and do a running motion I hear a "pop" or similar noise every time the leg comes down.
Well it all started when I was playing a soccer game. I went to go for a kick and I heard a snap in my hip area. For the next few weeks it would be hard to walk, and from then on it would never be the same. A similar event would happen two more times, once whilist sprinting the other time I was kicking again. I have seen about 3 doctors I would say. Each time I never got a diagnosis. They all gave me the same exercises which only seemed to hurt it.
Currently I have daily pain. Everything I do is affected. I am too afraid to kick or sprint. Lifting leg and holding is painful. Running is very difficult and it feels like I have ankle weights on. During my latter years of high school, the pain was tremendous, but I ran through it anyway. This probably has lead to more problems.
