our daughter has had hip pain (felt in groin) for 15 months (mainly in one side, sometimes both) as well as some knee/thigh/occasional neck pain
it started out of the blue and has never gone away
has had whole range of investigations (x-rays, MRI, uss, bloods) - all normal
originally transient synovitis suggested but as has gone on so long, was referred to a rheumatologist who said could be possible juvenile arthritis before we moved countries, but new GP reluctant to investigate this further as results were previously normal
has been found to have mild scoliosis (3%) and seems to walk with uneven gait (+ feet point outwards)
pain present pretty much all the time on movement, although worse when she has flare ups - then she walks painfully with a limp, and can find it difficult to move leg
she cannot comfortably cross her legs
pain relief only mildly effective
we have considered a psychological element in our attempts to make sense of it but having witnessed her in pain - hard to see that it is totally made up - even at school teachers have told us how it affects her
any thoughts gratefully received - we have found the medical profession recently to be quite irritated by us (and the problem)
we just feel not entirely convinced it is caused by nothing at all!
