Hip, groin and pubic bone pain: cannot sit down.
Hi,18 months ago i had pain in my left hip,after avoiding lying on it etc the pain also occured in my left hip.My GP said mild Arthritis,but the pain wasnt mild. I saw a ortho consultant who Diagnosed Hip bursitis,2 months of physio later the pain hadn't gone and i'd developed another pain in my butt area that was difficult to pinpoint,it hurt after about 20 minutes to sit down. My ortho said ischial bursitis,although the pain wasnt directly coming from my sitting bones and was near impossible to recreate by pressing around the area. I had a an x-ray and Mri which showed imflamation near the hip bursas but nothing near my groin backside,pelvic area. I then had cortizone shots into the hip and ischial tubeosity. the hips improved they didnt hurt all the time but i still couldnt lie on my sides still,the sitting problem showed no improvement. The otho said i may have micro hamstring tendon tears and to see a physio for massage. I did and the problem all this time later is still there,it was pinpointed to be coming from the pubic ramus bones on both sides. The area caused massive pain under palpatation at certain points and after 6 months of physio the pain if anything was worse.I have had to have bone scan to rule out serious desease which had me worried to bits for a week,but that came back clear. I have just had more injections directly into the painfull spots on my pubic bones and they have not worked either. i'm a desperate man, i drive for a living and whilst i havnt been off sick i've been seconded to another area where i dont have to sit,thats been 12 months and they want a light at the end of the tunnel. My wife and myself have no life together as i cant do anything, cinema, meals out,holidays are all imposible. It's all worse now than when i first saw the otho with just one sore hip, it now hurts straight away if i sit,i cant lie on my sides i have pain coming up from my groin to my abdumen if i lie in my front,and lying on my back causes pain to happen in my butt/very lower back. This means sleep is a nightmare and i feel half asleep all the time,it's getting to the point where at 34 years old i feel finnished. I see the ortho next week but i get the impression he's stumped.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this?,clear scans of all types yet there has to be something causing it.
(sorry about the giant post,i'm a desperate man,it could have been 100 times longer).
