What could this hip pain be??

Aug 16, 2008 - 3 comments



hip pain




unknown pain


severe hip pain


sharp pain

I'm so tired of Doctors sending me back home without helping me or giving me an answer besides "I don't know". So I'm hoping to get somewhere by posting my problem here. I'm hoping someone here can help.

So I've been having what seems to me like hip pain for over a year now. When i get up, or sit down, or move, or bend, or walk, I experience this pain. It feels so sharp and occurs mostly in my right hip and occasionally, but not so much, I get the pain in my left hip. The pain is so sharp and high-scaled that I feel like I will fall and break a bone! I practically hop around to try to keep the pressure off of my hip(s). Sometimes I stay still hoping for the pain to subsides but it lingers and the pressure of the pain makes me feel more weak like I cant stand still much longer. A few times I have collapsed to the floor but caught myself bent over, hands touching the floor, trying to prevent something worse from happening. Even when I sit though, I can feel the pressure of the pain...
I've been to the hospitals many times for this but no luck with pinning a name to this problem. I have noticed that my bones "pop" a lot more since this has been going on. But when/if my hip "pops" it does not make the pain go away. If I lie down flat on my back it hurts so bad to get up because of my hip. So I sleep propped up... It was really bad during my pregnancy. I delivered my daughter july 3rd 2008 and since then have still been having the problem. I have recently visited a doctor but still no luck...

I'm so scared because I fear it is something bad or could get worse with time...The doctors only do x-rays and nothing else because they show that everything is normal....
Someone please give me some insight. Thank u.

By the way I am 23 year old African American female if that matters at all.

Its A...

17 weeks

So we had our ultrasound and the first thing the ultrasound tech asked us was if we wanted to know the gender of our baby. Of course we did!! She applied warm gel to my belly and let the wand smooth it around. Already the baby was jumping off the walls, lol.After checking to see that all body parts were developing good, she was able to tell us that we were expecting a baby GIRL :)

Yayyy!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!! Girls rule, boys drool ;) Just kidding...except the first part. Girls really do rule!!!!! LOL.

Nobody understands Autism

Jan 25, 2008 - 0 comments

My nephew is 4 yrs old and was diagnosed with Autism b4 his 1 yr mark. I didn't even understand his growth patterns. He wasn't talking or walking and used to stare off and hit his head and not cry...just to give a bit of an insight. He played with toys but in a different way. He stacks them or lines them up and if you disturb or distract him he gets really upset. Hes very quiet most of the time and is content just lying on the floor staring off into space...
I bought a book that I wanted to tell you about. Its called "With the Light" by Keiko Tobe.
Its a big book and has like manga style comic book style but its really good. And is good if you want to understand Autism. Its about a mother who battles with her sons autism from birth to school years and its affect on home life and work even. And the fear it can create with the birth of another child. If you Google it you can find summaries. And if you go to you can buy it at a better price. I didn't put the book down until I finished it. And I actually understood my nephew more...
Autism is very serious and other may think the mothers aren't fit or are abusing their child...Just wanted to suggest this reading. Volume 2 comes out this Spring.
