Pain in hip, groin. Diagnosed as Piriformis syndrome. Currently limping, cannot sit, stand for a long time. Suggestions?

Hi Doc, I m having hip trouble that is getting worse over time. I am a cyclist (2000 miles in 2012 until I got injured in July). Was riding a bike that was too big. Anyway, doc s want me to get a spinal MRI but I ve had disk pain before and this is not it. I can bend, twist, reach, lean and it only hurts my hip. Recently my groin is giving me a lot of trouble too. I suspect a torn labram, and the doc has already said piriformis syndrom. I limp, don t work out, can t sit or stand for long, only relief is lying in the floor and rocking back and forth on the bad leg. Awk!

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you have could be related to a labral tear or a nerve root compression or a pyriformis syndrome. A direct clinical examination and investigations like MRI are necessary to pin point the exact cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
