Question Hip Flexor pain

Had bariatric surgery 5 years ago. 60 lb weight loss. Maintained it since.

About 2 years ago, I stopped taking iron due to elevated hematocrit levels and stopped calcium dosing to 600-800 mg daily at the recommendation of my endo.

Not sure if it's a coincidence or as a result, but i've been experiencing various pain including what feels like a psoas tear, hip flexor pain, enthesitis/enthesopathy diagnosis without underlying issues like RA, PSA etc.

Ortho/PT visits haven't helped much. Any input or even an advice of what type of doc to see for this would be great.

Re: Hip Flexor pain

Welcome to the board.

If you are looking for a medical suggestion, perhaps a sports medicine doc might be able to help. Iíve had four lumbar spine surgeries and have found that doctors in general are not helpful when it comes to issues with structural alignment, and soft tissue...ligaments, tendons, fascia, etc. Plus in western medicine, physicians are only interested in their specific kingdoms and pay no attention to the body as a whole, or the various connecting links!

After a three level lumbar fusion, I had many problems with issues with psoas, piriformis and hip flexors. I had the most success with a person who does bodywork...working on structural alignment, breaking up focal adhesions, etc. Unfortunately I cannot tell another person where to look for this type of practioner as it varies so much...and I just got lucky! Sorry I realize this isnít helpful...but I am suggesting you broaden your horizons when thinking about what type of ďdoctorĒ or therapist might be helpful to you!

Physical therapy can be useful but is largely hit or miss, depending on who you see and his/her training and experience.

You donít say for how long you have been experiencing this pain/these issues. Did it begin after the change in medication?
