Since March 2014 I have had a problem with my hip and nerves. The initial problem I had was that my hips felt like they were swinging up and down lots, and this was painful. I went to a physiotherapist, who said my muscles in my lower back were tight. She loosened them up and the pain left for a while. A couple of weeks later all of my tight leg felt completely numb for the duration of about a week. I gradually recovered feeling in this leg.
Two or three months later, about a month ago, my back completely went when I was moved to sit down. The next day I still had great pain in my lower back and additionally round the upper area of my thighs. I went to my GP, who said a nerve in my back was being pinched and so prescribed me non steroidal anti inflamitories. The pain in the back and groin subsided, not I think, because of the ibuprofen.
Currently I still have massive amounts of tingling and numbness in my feet and legs, but have never had anything in my buttocks (so not piriformis syndrome?). I cannot ru withmy leg seinging across as it feels awkward and my legs get exceptionally tired very quickly (te power in my legs feels like it has just gone!)
Other problems, which I certainly believe to be related, are that my left leg is swinging across when I walk and run, the very very top of my right hip sometimes hurts. Another problem when walking and running is that my feet feel like they are landing in different places on the sole of the foot, left and right differently I mean, possibly my right leg is striding further forward than the left, it certainly feels like it. Also I think I might have one leg longer than the other, plus a rotated pelvis.
Just this week I went to a back expert after being referred to them by my GP. They conducted a physical examination of my back and found nothing wrong. This means I am left with absolutely no clue what is wrong with me and no useful medical help. I am sixteen and a county standard track and cross country athlete. I have been out of running for longer than anyone my age should be. Does anyone know of anyone good who might be able to treat these symptons?
