hip and lower back have been MRI'd
she's seen chiropractor, rheumatologist, orthopedic, and primary care
the main thing she can relate to when it starts is when she's under a lot of stress. other than that it just kind of comes when it wants to. they can never get one certain movement or activity to trigger the pain.
she's tried celebrex and she thought it was helping a bit at first but then she had a bad day and the pain was the same as always so nothing specific has been successful in helping her. she did get steroid inj from rheumatologist at one point at it helped slightly, i believe.
she's had a blood panel for rheumatoid but i think that's it. no one's ordered bloodwork.
she feels the pain in the "crook" of her groin...right at the top of her leg, kind of where your underwear or a bathing suit will fall.
something else we were wondering, could this be related to her medication Lipitor? i know its only in one leg but she says she does feel achy occasionally because she notices her whole body feeling better when she first take the celebrex...it just never helped the groin pain specifically.
any help you can offer, even if it's some other testing or type of md would be greatly appreciated. thi is affecting her quality of life.
