    Constant left side hip pain


    I used to get terrible heel pain from standing about a year ago (plantar fasciitis), so I got orthotic inserts for my shoes. This made my heel pain a lot better. But gave me a lot of left leg/hip pain.

    I then found some better inserts a few months later, but that time I think I messed my hip up from the bad inserts recommended by a (rubbish) podiatrist.

    It started off just a bit of hip pain that would last a day at the worst, until now where I seem to get constant left hip pain about 5-6 days a week. Doctors have been pretty useless saying taking anti inflammatories which hasn't done anything. I used to do 5 days a week at work, and now I only do 3 days a week, but that hasn't helped either. Tried Physio that hasn't helped either. Doctor thinks it's either hip bursitis or IT band problems. I have tried foam roller, and didn't notice much difference!

    Recently I have noticed something weird. I got a new TV and whenever I play my playstation, I get arm and shoulder ache on my right side, which can last a whole day. However when I get this pain, my hip pain goes away completely until the next day! This shoulder pain is about 3/10 while hip pain can get to about 7/10 on pain scale. 10 being very painful. I did used to have a shoulder problem, but that was about 3 years ago!

    Anyone experience anything similar or got any advice? These pains are driving me up the wall. I am only 30, and being in constant pain 80% of the time is not fun. Sorry if I put this in the wrong forum and for length of text, I'm new here.
