For 7 years now I have had progressively worsening chronic hip pain. I"ve been to the doctors more than I can remember. I've had x-rays, MRI's, CT scans, cortisol injections, PT, acupuncture, heat therapy, massage therapy, etc. Seems that with all of this I only get a short reprieve at best. The scans show nothing, but the pain is so real. The doctors keep telling me that there is only minor changes in my bad leg. Like its only 3/4 of an inch shorted than the other one. Or its only slightly misaligned and it doesn't account for all of my pain. But it hurts like crazy. Some days I can't walk. I mean it hurts to sit, how on earth can I avoid sitting, especially when it hurts to stand for too long. I feel like every movement I make causes pain.
I did some research and it seems that Labral Tears is the only thing that matches my symptoms exactly, but the doctor doesnt' seem to think thats what it is and I am fighting to get the one test that will prove whether it is or isn't. Anyone have any information?
