Arthritis or something else?
Mid February I started having a pain in my left butt. I am a female, 66 yrs old and very physically active and have been all my life. After about a week (no exercise) the pain started in my left groin area. Iced and ibuprofen were what I used. Occasionally when I would overwork in the yard I would have a hitch in left side, but nothing like this. It then started pulsation from groin to knee, then need to ankle. More like tingling those places versus pain. I then went to the Ortho Dr. that could fit me in and he said I have arthritis of the hip and gave me a cortisone shot in the groin and prescription for Meloxicam and take tylenol for pain. I still am having these symptoms and will probably need to go back to Dr. I just thought it so strange that the onset would develop suddenly for this length of time. I guess I wonder if there could be something else, like something sitting on a a nerve, etc. That is why I am searching for any answers or suggestions. Thank whoever.
