HI yes I suffer with this, as a new symptom.

I had a real struggle a few weeks ago even had to get the doctor out because of my weird back pain.

Its a funny pain in the hip but not really in the hip if that makes sense. When it was at its worse it felt like the top of my thigh was rock hard rigid and I couldnt walk properly.

I get it at night now, and struggle sometimes to sleep, as my hips hurt but I know there is no osteo now as I had test for bone density and my hips are good.

Also yes the skin feels horrible to touch makes me feel sick my GP told me it was all NERVE RELATED.

If you find out what it is let me know, and likewise I will to you.

Its horrible and painful I have every sympathy for you believe me. Big hugs mariaxxx

Hi Sam,

So sorry you are in pain...don't really have an answer for you as my hip pain is wimpy compared to yours...bursitis and can be fixed with a shot of cortisone...kinda easy.

Hope you are doing a bit better today.

Let us know, okay?

Wanna :o)
