Injection for hip pain
Could someone give me advice regarding arthritis in my hip?
Obviously the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a huge backlog of physiotherapist appointments and other hospital and GP visits so like everyone else we have to play the waiting game.
I also have arthritis in my shoulder which my GP treated with an injection and it improved my ability to move much easier. My question is this, would the same kind of treatment help with my hip. My GP has told me it’s a much more complicated procedure,
I don’t have much confidence in my GP due to his non commitment to diagnose that I had sciatica and was on crutches for ten months before having to go for a discectomy that was arranged after having to pay for an MRI scan.
To be honest I’m struggling to do normal everyday things and it’s affecting my mental health not being as active as I’ve always been. I have horses and it’s breaking my heart that I am unable to care for them as well as they need me to. I suffer with long term anxiety and depression along with PTSD so the horses are my lifeline.
please can anyone share their thoughts and advice.
stay safe everyone and take care.
