Hi everyone, I have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both hips. I am 35 years old. I went to see my doctor complaining of hip pain and discomfort in my right hip for a few months. I also have bowed legs which I thought might be contributing. I was referred for an x-ray due to my medical history including a leg break as an infant. The x-ray showed arthritis in both hips. It has left me feeling quite shocked and asking a lot of questions. I guess I am looking for reassurance that there are other people like me and are managing the condition.
