Thank you for taking my message. Let me start by telling you that I commute to work and have a very sedentary position. I am like the energizer bunny that runs home, changes my clothes, goes to work out for an hour then walks my dog. I am very hyper!

About six months ago my spine started popping all the way down so I went to a chiropractor who after much dismay performed hard manual manipulation, then my tail bone started throbbing and I could not figure out what was going on. Then the upper part of my right buttock started hurting just below the back. I was in excruciating pain. One night I came home from work and turned quickly and my right hip popped very loudly. I thought that I had broken my hip but I could still walk. It was very painful and in the middle of the night I got up to go to the bathroom and my femur internally rotated to where I could feel the entire turn. I kept working, limping on one side, using a heating pad, and then it got worse. I went to an ortho, sports medicine specialist, primary and now pain management doctor and no one can figure out what I did. I have had two cortisone treatments... which the first one in my hip did help temporarily. The ones I had today were in my sacrum and hip. My joints consistently kill me and I have severe weakness in my right leg. The ortho wants me to do PT but I am scared to...I have had many x-rays, blood tests and an Mri and nothing except for some arthritis in my lower back. I also am wearing a lumber belt to keep my sacrum in because it seems as if my joints will not stay in. I am clicking and popping everyone. I have had a bone density test which has shown ostepenia.

I am almost 50 but feel like I may not even may it. It gets very depressing. Have you ever encountered this? What did I do to where my femur is internally rotating and aggravated my ligaments and tendons to the point where I am at right now?
