Left hip pain/leg ache
I have been diagnosed with problable MS. Only thing keeping the doctor from a definite diagnosis is a 2nd attack. The initial symptom was a heavy left leg back in August '05.
Starting earlier this year, I've have this pain in my left hip that occasionally turns into my whole left leg aching quite badly. The pain in my hip mainly shows up when I'm sitting in a specific position, such as with my legs cross legged or when I get up from a sitting position and try to walk. It also hurts when I stretch in the morning. It's in a very specific place on the inner part of my hip The all over my leg ache usually would only occur if I really over did it, walking a lot, climing stairs. Yesterday, though, I didn't really do anything too strenuous and my leg started aching and it still aching just as badly today. The doctor initially thought it was trochanteric bursitis but now she doesn't. She x-rayed my leg to see if it's arthritis but that was negative. I took motrin for 3 weeks straight, 3x's a day but it hasn't gotten better. I can tell when I place my hand on the inner part of my hip, that it's larger like maybe it's swollen. My doctor has suggested PT but what good is PT if you don't know what the problem is to begin with.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so, were you able to find out what the problem was? If it's related to my probable MS then I'll just reside myself to the knowledge that this pain will probably be with me for the rest of my life. But, if it's something unrelated that I can fix I sure want to try.
I also, occasionally, experience an ache in my left arm.
