Help me diagnose my hip problem!!
About a year ago, I was playing basketball, made a quick movement and heard something pop in my left hip. There was no pain at the time, but there was pain starting the next day. I feel my hip pop in and out of place, it is constantly sore, and i cant rotate my left hip to the right without extreme pain. It seems to tense up when I have been sitting for a long period of time. I've gotten multiple MRI's and the orthopedic surgeon said it was fluid gathering in my hip caused by rheumatoid arthritis. I don't want to discount his opinion but he was very dismissive and looked at the MRI for less that 30 seconds, and I find it difficult to believe arthritis can be causes by injury. All my internet "research" points to tearing the tendon, but I don't want to self diagnose. Please help if this has happened to you or if you know anyone who has had a similar problem. thanks!!
