Ongoing Hip Pain
I am a 48 year old women, and have had hip pain in both hips for about five years. It is impossible for me to lie on my sides at night, thus I do not get sleep other than being assisted with a small dose of prescribed sleep medication. I feel this has not helped the issue, however, and the doctor has diagnosed me with sciatica since I also have slight lower back pain. Lately, I have also had severe pain in my groin and pelvic bone area. I had a blood test to rule out the possibility of a ectopic pregnancy, and I can't remember having any sort of back injury or strain which could have brought this on, however, my two aunts died of bone cancer. I have tried physical therapy, acupuncture and using a tens unit, but nothing will help the hip pain. If I walk excessively during the day, by night the pain is even worse. I don't want to return to the doctor, as she is beginning to think its all in my head and still is diagnosing me of having sciatica. I don't think I would have it for so long, and can't afford another doctor, as I go to a clinic.
Any suggestions as to what this could be? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want to sleep on my sides again!
