He looked at my Xray (could not access MRI) and then physicallly manipulated me to reproduce the pain. He says its osteo arthritis and has referred me to someone else. On the xray my unaffected femur head looks spherical but the painful side looks a strange shape, kind of flat in one point.
Hes suggests the answer is arthroscopy so they can have a look round and remove anything they need while they are there.
Terrified about the thought of surgery but at least I feel like I am heading in the right direction after 3-4 years of misdiagnosis.
Loverunning: I feel your misery, I miss my old life.
Parklife: Had X-ray, it said "CAM impingement with bony protruberence at femoral neck" so I went for an MRI which said "There is no evidence of any CAM impingement" and " no labral tear" so surgeon said he didint think FAI was causing my hip pain.
