I have ongoing pain and achiness in my hips, and all around my pelvis. The following areas hurt to touch, my waist, sides of my breasts, bottom of my rib cage, sacrol iliac joints, outsides of knees and simply running your fingers down my thighs. Initially tested for rheumotoid with some elevated results but then did a "richie block" which all came back negative and Rhematoid Doc did not want to see me.
Now 6 months later and worse. Always tired, can't squat without a lot of pain, it hurts to sleep on my sides. Doctor is sending me to a pain clinic which has a 3 month wait. I want a DIAGNOSIS not pain control to mask the symptoms. I currently take Vicodin daily just to get by. Any ideas?? Who do you all think I should see for a specialist? My doc will send me where I want but I think he is at a loss.
