leg pain
« on: January 21, 2010, 02:38:31 PM »
I've posted before about the worsening condition of my hip. I now have pretty constant pain down my leg into my shin. Is this a normal part of the degrading hip? Also I'm wondering if maybe this is as much a back/disc issue. Any experience with this anyone?

In end stage bone on bone you do tend to get some shooting pain, along with pain in your lower back too.

I had pain down the side of my leg and back real bad towards the end.

Hi Arc1,
Yes this is what happens sometimes as you're
good leg takes all the strain. I ended up with huge muscles
in my right shin akin to a runners with a rash also like hives
which still flares up sometimes.
Good luck with vwhatever u decide.

Oh yeah, I remember that leg pain before surgery very well. I also had back problems due to compensation walking (the penguin shuffle). Those pains are all gone for me now however I still get occasional lower back stiffness every once in awhile. I have noticed that if I don't do my stretches for a week or so that is when my lower back tightens up on me.

yup, mine really showed up as knee pain, probably from a tight ITB because of swelling around the hip.

My bad hips masqueraded as a bad back for many years.  I had very little pain in my hip joints.
My leg muscles hurt a lot and were stiff.  If I dropped something on the ground I had a heck of a time picking it up.  I couldn't bend my knees or my back.

The last back surgeon I saw took one look at me and told me it was my hips, not my back.  He said if it was my back the leg pain would go all the way to my feet not stop at the knees.

He also said he did not do hips so I would have to find a hip orthopedic.  Then he said he had just read an article on hip resurfacing and I looked like a good candidate thus starting on my road towards a bi-lat hip resurfacing.
