Major, major hip pain.. (not riding related)

Some of you guys may or may not have seen my thread a while back about knee and hip pain.

Anyways, I went to the doctor not long ago and had an MRI. It showed a small cyst (about the same diameter as a pen lid) and thinning of the cartilage near the cyst.

He said, he sees this in arthritis patients. BUT, feels arthritis is too strong a word to use as I am only 15 years old.

Anyway, I was hoping someone can give to some ways to releive the pain... I'm just laying here and for maybe the past four hours my hip has been kinda caught. Like, I move the wrong way and it ATTEMPTS to pop but won't. And now, it's just hurting. Constant pain for the past hour and it keeps getting worse. It's raidiating downwards mostly all the way to my knee. But it's worst in my hip of course. I have gotten this before, it puts me in tears at times. I take ibuprofen, and it normally helps but it takes some time.

Quick relpys for helping the pain would be great...

I also get knee pain. It randomly starts hurting (sharp pain) then swells. Sometimes hurts badly like a constant sharp pain.. You name it.

I don't know, I just could use ideas to help.. Soon.

I have something very similar and it was diagnosed as the psoas muscle which runs down your bum causing hip pain especially and downward. If you google it you will find there are exercises for it. Some days I can't stand at the counter for more than a minute, many days it doesn't bother me. If this is what it is, it's common. Good luck.

Dunn, have you tried using an ice pack on the affected area? Since you said it's acting like arthritis, icing may help relieve the pain and inflammation of the joint.

Do you ride English or Western? If you ride English, you might also consider switching to jointed stirrups and getting rid of your hard irons. I found they made a world of difference when it comes to back, knee, and ankle pain.

I'm so sorry you're going through this at such a young age.

I know this may sound a little weird but my husband has gout and it has helped him. Unfortunately it's not a quick fix but it may help. Drink any dark red juice, especially cherry. Make sure it is 100% dark red juice, not apple juice with just a little cherry juice. When you begin to have pain, drink a glass or two. It seems to enhance to effects of ibuprofen and other pain killers. You can also east fresh cherries, blackberries, etc. Hope you feel better soon!

I ride western, and I usually don't have hip pain when riding actually. Now I defiantly have knee pain when riding though, I have to keep my sturrips long which I don't like because I'm barley hanging on to them.

And thanks redpony, I will sure try that!

I am older than you (48 LOL) and I have fibromyalgia. A lot of my problems are in my lower back and hips. It is mostly the piroformis muscle and the IT (ileotibial) band. The pain starts in my lower back/hip area and travels down my outer leg to my knee and sometimes all the way down to my ankle. Fortunately, there are exercises you can do that will greatly help. Try this link:

Also, I find a deep tissue massage with a therapist that really understands the piroformis and IT band helps more than almost anything along with regular chiropractic visits.
