    Hi Gemma
    We don't have any information on this but it might be a good idea to ask your rheumy for more details such as, does this condition have a name and, more importantly, does it need to be treated and what treatment would he suggest.

    Hi Gemma
    That's what I was thinking but I couldn't say so. If this is avascular necrosis - and you still don't know for sure - there is treatment so do talk to your rheumy.
