Hi I am new here, I have been unwell for the last 10 years or so.
It started with leg problems and develped into spine and pelivc problems, they said that I was growing to fast and the bones were growing faster than the muscles, causing the muscles to be permatly contracted. I got passed from department to department and no one could decide what to do, beacuse I was being bullied at school (partly beacuse of my walking) I just got sent to a theopist and wasn't helped physcailly at all. By 16 my general heath was terriable I was picking up every cold and was very tied all the time CFS was diagnosed.

Now I am in my mid 20's I can't work full time normally and at the moment I can't work at all. A couple of weeks ago I experinced a poping in my "good hip" and since then I barley put any weight on it and I can't work or drive and I'm just stuck at home.

My doctor said it was a muscle spasm at first and that there could be cartiledge damage but he didn't examine me, he gave a medication to help the spasm. I went back the following week and I had noticed that the pain was different instead of just being generiled all over the area it was just in the front of the hip and feels like someone has taken a sleadge hammer to it, my gp then did an x-ray. as this week has gone on the pain is getting worse and worse I can't eat as I feel so nauseus from the pain. So I called my doctor today and he said the x-ray is clear so its just a muscle spasm and I am going to get refered to the pain clinic.

I know muscle pain and this is different. I need help but my doctor won't refer me back to othopodics - i haen't seen them for 8 or 9 years.

No one has actullay examined me yet, checked my movement levels or anything, this can't be right?
