It says hormones during pregnancy, but would periomenopause cause it as well? Also, I am not an athelete, I am a 55 year old woman. It basically is in the same location all the time,not going down my legs or other areas. I see where it is hard to diagnose, is this true? I feel a small bump in the area, is that consistent with this type of condition? I am currently taking an anti inflamatory called Etodolac, is this a good anti inflamatory? Where would be my next step in diagnosis, as my doctor just said this could be it and let me go home. Nothing else.
