I know, this really shouldn’t be the right place to ask this. However, I don’t have a GP I like, and although I know ultimately I want to get sent to a specific physical therapist (he’s worked with my husband and my daughter, and he’s the husband of a co-worker and he’s great) I’m not sure if I can actually get that to happen with our medical system in a remotely timely matter.
So here I am.
I ride and teach for a living. I haven’t had any significant falls or accidents recently. It started out about 6 weeks ago with hip pain (outer hip - right where you’d think the joint is) in my left leg. I was gimpy for a while, then came home, rested, then noticed it in my right… It hurts in both. Sometimes one more than the other, usually just nagging, but I occasionally gimp. I’m sparingly using NSAIDS, but only when I’m really hurting. I’m much better riding than walking.
I’m just shy of mid-40s.
What am I dealing with?
