I have hip osteoarthritis (& neck & spine) but on my worst hip my lower leg is bigger than my other lower leg. This hasn't come on all of a sudden it's been like this for a long time but i have just recently found you guys so thought i would just ask if this is the same for anyone else??

    Hi Wobbly,

    We aren't medically qualified so as Sharon suggests, it's probably best you get this checked out by your GP. Hope you get some answers.

    Thank you for your replies.
    I have a review with gp next month to see if gabapentin is helping I will ask her then.
