This is my first post. I have been living with RA etc. for 12 years. Currently I am waiting to speak with the Orthopaedic Surgeon regarding a suspected laberal tear in hip joint. I have had a terrible pain in my groin area, with locking and clicking of the hip for the past six months. I also have been suffering other flare ups and to this end have not been able to sleep for a number of months. This means that I am not energised doing the day. It is stopping me carrying out simple daily tasks. I have recently been prescribed Butec 10mg patches, which don't seem to have helped. They have made me feel a little bit sick and dizzy. Previously, I was on tramadol, which I must say did relax me. Does anyone have similar pain to me? If so, I would be so grateful if you could let me know the medication that you have tried and if I should perhaps try some exercises.
Keep well. Suzanne
