RLL is your hip pain a referred pain from your back?
Nope, the hip issue started long before the back thing, and per x-rays it's apparently from a mild joint deterioration, and that was aggravated by a tight, tender iliotibial band along one thigh that I didn't even know was there until the therapist pointed it out, and showed me how it could irritate the hip bursa. Combo of hip exercises/stretches along with relieving the ITB via roller massage have helped tremendously as to climbing stairs, which is what made me hobble before. I'll just continue the stretches at home and keep an eye on the ITB, and that should do it, knock on wood.
Am going back to my PCP tomorrow re the back situation, which seems to possibly emanate from an arthrotic lumbar spine (my spine is a mess), probably something impacting a nerve. Not sure how we're going to tackle this. It's not constant, but when it hurts, it's excruciating, similar to sciatica.
Sorry you asked?
I, too, love Andrews but not every doc there is a genius.
Good luck with the repair to your trigger finger!
And six people casted?? Obviously your family doesn't just sit around. Ha.
