I've been doing research on back & hip pain for 2 years now and still cannot find a re-assured answer to my problems.
I have never had backache until after the birth of our daughter (I was 29 then) - I felt quite fit even during my whole pregnancy and did moderate exercises throughout it. Then, during the delivery something went wrong and since that day I have been experiencing a bad backache. To make it worse, 8 months after the birth I started feeling this sharp aching pain in my left hip. I can walk only a short distance (1/5 - 1/4 of mile) and then the pain alleviates to such a level that I cannot make any single step more.
I used to walk miles and miles as I love walking and being active. We have a huge wonderful forest with a farm near our home but I cannot make even to get there! I'd love to take our 2.5-year old daughter to lots of places and pick her up like I used to do when she was a baby but...
I lived on strong uninflamatorry painkillers for good several months but they did affect my stomach so had to quit.
Doctors here in United Kingdom don't know what to suggest - X-rays and even MRI scans don't show anything wrong
I was now put on the waiting list for physiotherapy and have to wait 18 weeks for my first appointment
I've been doing exercises (pilates, yoga) for quite some time but they don't seem to be helping much...
3 months ago I went abroad to seek for other suggestions and saw a private doctor/surgeon. He suggested I only had to strenghten my back and pelvis muscles and everything would go back to their places so I will hopefully be 'normal' again...
I've been doing special exercise routine since I returned home but have no improvements as yet. Maybe I am doing something wrong and should I do the exercises if it hurts while I do them?
Just wanted to ask if anyone from you heard a similar story and is there anything else I can try
Didn't think it would come up such a long story - thank you for your time
