Hello, I am new to the forum.
I was diagnosed with OA in both hips in Dec and I am waiting for a referral to see a specialist. My GP has said I will need a hip replacement at some point and probably sooner rather than later because the mobility of my right hip is very poor. I am currently having physio.
I was taking Naproxen twice a day together with Omeprazol but had to stop because of stomach problems. I am now taking just codeine and paracetemol and have problems sleeping, waking continually throughout the night. My latest symptom is a burning pain down my right shin - is this likely to be connected to my hip problem and what can be done about it?
I have also just been diagnosed with OA in my feet and I am due to have an MRI on my foot next Tues.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
