Im a healthy 21yr old female. Since I was 5 years old I've had aching pain in my legs. At first it started out when I would walk or exercise to much. At first the doctors thought they were just growing pains. Then they said it was an antiverson in my hips that had not been caught at birth. They assured my parents I would grow out of this and it would not bother me much longer. Years later, the pain not only has not gone away but has gotten much worse. Numerous times I've asked my doctor about my condition and they say its cleared up and I just need to exercise more. Yet the more I exercise the more it hurts. Over the past two years its gotten so bad at times I can barely walk and spend most of my time sitting. I dont want to live with this the rest of my life. Im 21 and its hard for me to enjoy going out with my friends or doing normal things that I love to do. Is there anyone out there who might possibly have an idea what could be causing this to get worse? Or even have a simular story?
Thank you

Lauren
