I am only 34 and have stage 2 arthritis in my left hip. The doctor said I will need a hip replacement in 5 to 7 years. In the meantime I am in terrible pain but can't take nsaids or narcotics. I do take Flexeril. Does anyone have anything they take or do that would help? Also I would love to hear from some of the younger people as it seems rare. Suggestions from all ages would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
