I too have chronic pain issues living with Fibromyalgia and what other things that entails can be difficult .Hello everyone! I'm a young 52yr old Female. Please bare with me! Over the past 6months my right hip has developed a constant debilitating pain I can't walk without my cane...my many phyicians at Mayo clinic have found a labral tear in the ball joint ... Continueing to prescribe narcotics that only upset my stomach and not improve my situation. I'm finding if more and more difficult to get around..Discounting my comunications every time I converse with them about the horrific amount of pain that I'm dealing with. I can't drive due to the meds I'm on now..I live alone and count on my daughter 45miles away for transportation to the clinic. I have degeneration of my lower spin/.neck as well... Chronic migraines...I can't continue to go to the ER here in my town for shots of morphine and Lorezapam to make my life comfortable while the Doctor from Mayo is telling me that my MRI's are coming back fine! She is'nt finding anything wrong. My latest conversation with my dr. from Mayo was no validating to me in the fact that I do have this pain....it's as real as I'm here..and I woke this morning ..early without pain meds so I could call her ASAP to get the right pills this time! She's tired of me...and I'm so tired as well! If there's nothing wrong..then I ask...WHY? why is there this pain? why can't I walk? WHy do my bones crack and dis locate when I move? That is not right! I can't support my own weight it seems :( So..my question is... Does she have to move me on..to another specialist?? I have an appt. in April with the Orthopedic Surgeon. In the mean time...she calls in meds for me to my pharmacy that are wrong for me..I can't take them..and so I suffer through the night! I had visited with her on the phone yesterday and made the arrangements of what to call in...so I'm very discouraged and it's so hard to remain upbeat and positive. The pain is so unbearable at this point in my life..I have a cane now and she's suggested a scooter chair to make my life easier..along with the narcotics. matter of time. Please..any advise or words I will greatly appreciate. :) thank you. MoDeenak

Hi MoDeenak,

I know others will be responding (though it does get quieter over the weekends) but I wanted to say hello and welcome you here.

I know it's so hard being in constant pain and feeling so invalidated and I know that others here will be able to offer you support and insight. (((softhugs)))

Your post is confusing. First it says you have a labral tear in your hip and then it says there is nothing wrong. I didn't read all the post because it was too long and confusing. I won't comment on the rest of your issues but I know something about labrum tears in the hip.

First, labrum tears in the hip don't always show up in an MRI. And they don't ever heal on their own. They can do arthroscopic surgery on hips but not many doctors do them. If your doctor is not one of them then they're not likely to recommend it as an option. Do a Google search for arthroscopic hip surgery and your state and you'll find a list of doctors that do the surgery.

Hello MoDeenak...MiMi in NC.....I normally post on the Fibromyalgia exchange.....so I wanted to reply and invite you over to check out this exchange....I know that you will find some good info about the wrath of the dragon, aka FM....

I would like to ask you if the doctors have checked your Vitamin D level....which is so very important for a lot of people....Low Vitamin D can cause additional pain and it can also affect other illnesses as well....it is a simple blood test...but you MUST ASK the doctor to run it....as it is not included (yet) in the normal bloodwork that the doctors do to rule out other illnesses...

Again....I hope that you will be sure and drop by on the FM board....


Take care and good luck....


MiMi
