Hello @Catirrusia. I am so sorry for your arduous journey. The pain is agonizing and frustrating. I’m hoping your GP can help and maybe refer you to another OS. I see you are a friend from Canada. Do you have a national Orthopaedic association that you could browse their members in your area? Don’t hesitate to ask any medical friends about an OS. It is amazing the network medical people have. Don’t give up. We’re here for you. Sending positive, healing prayers your way.
I had a CRP and a SR and blood test on April 12 snd 15 and everything was fine.
I had an MRI yesterday and looked at the images this morning but did not unferstand much.
How did your doctor detected infection?
And xrays do sometimes show muscles - it depends how the radiographer has set the resolution.
Look at this one of my knee - both layers of the quads, quads ligament and the patellar ligament can be seen in fine detail!
I still think it's psoas tendinitis. That's different to me saying I don't see anything untoward on the xray. If there was a psoas impingement, it would be caused by the edge shown in the left hand edge of the cup.
How is psoas tendinopathy diagnosed?
A well-trained doctor or other paramedical professional will suspect psoas tendinopathy based on your symptoms and a thorough examination of your hip. Resisted hip flexion and straight leg raise will often reproduce the pain. The diagnosis will often be confirmed by additional tests such as ultrasounds and MRIs. Not all of these tests are required to confirm the diagnosis.
I'm sorry you're depressed. Hopefully your situation is diagnosed soon and a plan put in place to bring you relief.
Wishing you comfort as you move forward. @Catirrusia
