Question
I have severe pain in my hips and legs that came on after I "thought" I strained my groin moving some furniture. I had an unremarkable hip X-ray, back showed some problems with L1-5 in discs (typical for my 64 year age as a active woman). I am so stiff when I stand up, and it gets better as I am up, but definitely not pain free and limited range of motion. Ugh. Seeing doctor in February. I am on vacation until then so I have been resting to no avail. I do have a history of osteoarthritis, and have had 2 shoulder and one knee totally replaced in the past 5 years.
