I have the hip pain but now it is in the front of the hips in the bladder area. I can't tell if it is connective tissue or what is going on. I thought maybe go to my ob/gyn and maybe get a scan or whatever they decide. I want to know if is it the FMS or is something else going on? I do have a prolapsed uterus from having 3 children, I am 57 and in menapause. I am not sure if I should go to this doctor or a rheumatologist. I think have the ob/gyn rule anything out then maybe go see a rheumy? I lift my grandson, and he is over 30 pounds and I can feel the pressure on my bladder or vagina when lifting. But, how to get him into the car seat? to the table? dressing? He isn't 2 yet and thinks it is fun to run from Nanny after his bath...LOL I do deal with sciatica, degenerative discs, arthritis to name a few and did get my SS last year.
