This is not really a CFS or FM thing, but it's not a Chit Chat thing either, exactly. Hoping to find more here with possible experience. I've been doing pretty well lately, health and pain-wise. My son went to camp last week, which necessitated a 9-hour road trip Friday before last. My husband and I both drove, although I did navigating, mostly. The next day, we turned around and drove 9 hours back. When I got home, my right leg was pretty stiff, a touch painful, but the limp went away in about 2 days. So, camp's over, we drive 9 more hours up to get son. My right leg was stiff that night, and a little painful to lie on, but could walk with no problem. The return trip, we stopped about half way to do some sight-seeing, and when I went to get out of the car, I could barely put weight on my right leg. My husband and son let me lean on them, an fortunately after about a minute, I could walk (hobble) on it. After our stop, we drove home. By the time we got home, my husband and son half-carried me indoors. I thought at first that it was sciatica -- because I'd been sitting so long that I'd pinched a nerve, although there was no numbness -- but I'm thinking this is not right. The pain I have is in my hip, and I put ice on it last night. Today my husband and I both noticed that my hips aren't symmetrical in silhouette any more. My right hip (the hurt one) sticks out, where the other side is concave. And when I've tried to lie on it (which is rather painful), it feels like there is a lump -- like a rock or roll of tissues -- in my pocket. Except, there is not rock or tissues, and no pocket! The pain is still ongoing. I'm getting around now w/an old pair of crutches. The 'bump' is not going down, and it's hard to find a position for sitting. Is it possible to dislocate a hip just from sitting? My hips have always been very flexible, so I'm not used to being able to NOT position myself any way I'd like. Tomorrow I've got to take this to a doctor. Family practitioner or chiropractor? Any comments welcome.
