I had an MRI in September and it showed 2 bulging discs in my lower back. On occasion, my lower back will actually hurt. More times than not, my hip is what's killing me. I get a horrible pain at my hip and goes down the side of my leg. I also get bad knee pain as well on the same side. I'm concerned about the knee pain specifically, because I did have a knee arthroscopy last year and dread the thought of ever needing another one. So, I'm actually HOPING that the knee pain is back related. Either way, I had called my orthopedic surgeon's office just to ask a question to the nurse, but was told I needed to schedule an appointment to come in instead, so I'll be going tomorrow. I hate doing that, in fear that they think I'm crazy.
