Customer Question
I'm just looking for...

I'm just looking for answers to alleviate the sharp pain I have, where both my femur meets the acetabulum inside my hips unilaterally. Ex-Rays are telling my doctor nothing

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

About 21/2 years. Raising to stand from a seated position as well as lowering my self into a seated position. When walking I'm still in pain but it's nothing compared to the up & down most going from a sit to stand and/ or stand to a sit

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

As a child I wore a leg brace to turn my right hip & through outward. As a transfer I rode horses daily & had been thrown from the frequently. In the last 2 years I went through menopause, which is when the pain started. And 6 months ago was the first time I was told I have osteoporosis

Only X-Rays, which didn’t show anything.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No MRI was completed, after my attending viewed my X-rays, he said an MRI wasn’t called for because the X-ray didn’t show anything. I thought it should be the opposite, since the pain is always there & the x-ray showed nothing, than an MRI should be used to rule out damage in soft tissue and/or tendons?
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

You're absolutely right.

You need an MRI to rule out soft tissue damage

I will request an MRI with both my primary physician & my pain Dr.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
