Dear Sir or Madame, I am female, 42, in good health, and work out regularly. For years I can rememeber having an acute, intermittent (maybe once or twice a month) pain (5 or 6 on a 1-10 pain scale) in my right inner hip area, which was 100% relieved by sitting, both feet on the floor and “swinging” my right leg out away from my body, thus hearing/feeling a “pop”. A couple of weeks ago, I felt that old familiar pain, but was unable to relieve it in the old usual way. After a few days of pain (from a 3, up to an 8 on pain scale) and trying every which way to manipulate my leg, trying to get that “pop”, I did finally manage to succeed, though without as complete a relief as I had experienced in the past. Unfortunately, I still suffer with the pain, sometimes making it “pop” and getting partial relief, sometimes not.
It’s getting hard to walk around for any length of time without limping and.
Is this a ligament/tendon sliping out of place? It doesn’t strike me as “boney”.
The pain is in my extreme upper inner right thigh… painless to palpation… no fever, redness or swelling… just that old pain, and also now the pain from trying to wiggle and wheadle my hip to “pop” and give some relief. Any help at all will be so appreciated.Sincerely, Shari
