Hope everyone is feeling their best today :) It's been a while since I've posted... and disappointed to say my behavior has been to post only when something confusing in happening. It may have been a couple years now, but since then I have happily graduated college, improved my marriage, gone on disability and acquired a few hobbies. Hooray for...

Thank you for your response! I have had an X-ray, but not the other tests you mention. I thought there should be more to the dx itself, so this makes sense. Thanks.

Dx is femoral torsion. From sitting in a W through to teens. It has deformed my hip bones in the rotator. So, PT for next 6 weeks before discussing other options. Those other options are not pretty.

That's the dx the ortho provided. I'm having a difficult time finding any research material online related to adults. I'm 35, female and have sat in a "W" my entire life. Well, I guess I stopped between age 16-18. At around age 31 I began experiencing extreme deep aching pain in my hips, thighs, and back of butt bones. I had also ...

Well, woke up today to pain behind right thigh. As if tight muscle in the entire thigh. Right hip aching, too. So odd that this pain is moving around and staying so intense. I'm drinking plenty of water and stretching. Made orthopedic appt for this Friday. We'll see what this madness is soon!

You've made some touching observations, and welcomed. Thank you. I haven't been through therapy for this although, I suppose I should now that you point out my feelings. It's not that I felt my career defined me, but more so that I was career minded in that I always envisioned myself working through retirement. Earning - at some level. I am cho...

Thanks for your reply, londres. I only recently began the process for ssi and have always been the top earner in our family until after the economic crash and my ms diagnosis. After that, my jobs have been menial and believe me, I've heard about how menial they were. It IS sad, actually because I married this guy based on how I admired his morals and dig...

Ty Ty The weight loss wasn't as difficult as I thought. Only 2.5 months to lose over 5 inches of gut fat! I'm proud :) I've researched a lot about piriformis being common, but also that some of it being related to previous back issues and degeneration issues. I'm a little concerned about that in particular and will know more when I s...

So it's come to the point of divorce. Finally. We've always known it would be, and always have threatened it only, we've stayed together - continuing to try, I feel, out if pity. I was dx'd with MS 2 yrs after our marriage at age 31. I am still functioning, but going through the application process for ssi. He has gotten really nasty thes...
