I began having pain in my right hip the week before Easter. I thought initially it was due to the Lupus or the Fibro, but it just wouldn't settle. My specialist put me on a strong course ofanti-inflammitories for 10 days. I was pretty good the whole 10 days, but as soon as the course was finished, back came he pain. I could barely walk! I would've got around on crutches if my arms had the strength to carry me!! I went to my GP, & he sent me for an ultra-sound, where it has showed up some calcification on the outside of my right hip. I am to go back next wednesday to have a cortisone injection that should hopefully relieve it for me. I also had my thyroid ultra-sound checked & go to the doc on Sunday to get results. He thinks I may have an enlarged thyroid.
On a brighter note though, my Lupus & Fibro seem to be progressively getting better, so hopefully once I've kicked this problem with my hip, I'll be on my way to better days.
