Re: Hip Pain When Standing
Tobias--you said it all perfectly! I, too, had the kind of pain Noodles described in the early stages of osteoarthritis in my right hip. I think it only took about 6 yrs. for mine to get to the point where I needed surgery, but it was quite a while. And sometimes we tend to wait a bit too long. My 83 yrs. old dad is suffering terribly with his left hip and won't go see about it! Noodles, if I were you, I'd talk to a good orthopedic surgeon about having some baseline xrays of that hip and then perhaps you could work on strengthening the muscles around the joint to buy yourself some time. But finding a good doctor NOW is very important. Good luck to you!
