Hi I'm a 25yr old female and I've been having really bad pain in my hip. All I remember was that 8 years ago I got up after sitting on a chair and something in my hip locked. I was able to walk after, but 2 years later it began to click and 2 years after that (2006) it began to hurt.
I had a steroid injection into the hip which helped but I can also feel knots in my lower right tummy area. I'm quite active during the day as I work and I'm fast at walking and very athletic - although I have tried to take things very slowly as sometimes either hip clicks when I go up the stairs or change direction. On a few occasions I'm going up steep pavements and my right hip feels like it's been pulled.
The pain's so bad that today it woke me up and I got into work like a zombie. The odd thing was that the pain materialised straight after I woke up.
I've been told I'm lax in my joints and slightly hypermobile but I've got an appointment with the hospital in 2 weeks regarding hip arthroscopy.
Is there any chance my hip is infected as I've been taking NSAIDS for absolutely ages and nothing seem to really help! I've also been signed off work as the pain is now present in my knee and other hip.
