Is there anyone else out there on the Hub who has this?
Growing up I always knew I was born with a problem with my hips, mum often just referred to it as 'clicky hips, nothing to worry about there fine now'. As a baby I wore double nappies and my shoes on opposite feet to correct it.
I never had any further treatment.
Until about 3 months ago when after seeing a myotherapist I was unable to walk, after numerous ultrasounds, X-rays and now seeing an osteopath it's been discovered my hips where never corrected properly, the double nappies pulled them up, but not in, leaving huge gaps and subsequently allowing spurs to form on both hips.
I live in agony, unable to stand, sit or lay in the same spit for more than 20 minutes without it causing pain, I can't pick anything up off the floor, stairs are agony and as for walking any where, forget it!
I'm over it, I've been drugged off my head the past 3 months, I can't take DD out on fun activities as I'm incapable of joining in, I feel like a zombie, doctors want to wait and see if osteo will improve it, osteo wants to take it slow as there's 31 years of damage to repair, reading up online about other adults living with this is so depressing.
I just want to be able to walk again, live without pain, not rely on so many drugs, and for DD, DP and I to take our gorgeous dogs for a walk.
