Between lupus, fibro, arthritis, obesity, APS, and more, it's often difficult to tell what a pain is from, and there's a tendency to write it off no matter how intense it is.
However, I am having horrible burning pain in both the top ridge of my hips and where my leg bone inserts to my hip. It refers all around the area, including my lower back, buttocks, and lower abdomen. The actual areas of the main pain and intense burning are sooooo tender to the touch, and laying on them is impossible.
I've not had hip x-rays in quite some time, but I go to a charity hospital, so it's not always easy to get tests, so I have to pick and choose my battles.
Do these symptoms sound like avascular necrosis? And is this a battle I should pick and ask for hip x-rays? Or is this merely muscular and something that again nothing can really be done for?
Big questions, I know... but I'm hurting... and it helps just to know you guys know sometimes.
