One year ago I fell at work on some ice. Fell on cox sic and r hip area. It felt like someone had driven a knife into my hip. On the injury report I reported hip and low back pain. An Xray was done and then a MRI on my lumbar sacrum area. Slight disk buldge and no impingement on nerves, some early signs of arthritis. I was still complaining about hip pain but no one listened until a month ago. My symptoms were and still are: Pain in my right foot when I sit a certain way walk a certain way, sit on toilet a certain way, sleep on my right side, back/stomach a certain way.
OK now for the hip: Dull pain along with sharp pain depending on how I move. Pain in inner groin/hip area. Hip occasionally locks up on me when I stand up from a sitting position.
I just finally recieved the results from the MRI with Contrast a year after the initial injury. I was also diagnosed two years ago with Hashimotos and I do have issues with arthritis although still trying to get a handle on it as I speak. Here is the report:
Indication: R hip pain, question labral tear.
Findings: There is some degenerative osteoarthritis of R hip with some small marginal osteophytes. There is also chondromalacia predominantly along posterior and superior aspect of the femoral head with irregularity of the articular cartilage. No intra-articular loose bodies are identified, allowing for some intra-articular air which was apparently administered at the time of injection.
