Fortunately you don't hip have hip dysplasia. The sockets, acetabulum, are normally formed and roofed, and the hips sit nicely in the sockets.
There are two types of hypermobile hips. One is hdd or hip dysplasia. That you don't have. The other is simply known as hypermobility and is considered normal, although it certainly can be painful. In the groin, hip and upper leg.
And hypermobility is what eds is all about.
Is it possible for you to send to me at contact a larger file of your pelvis. This one is only 13KB and not diagnostic.
A little test for you: Lie flat on your back and first pull the less painful knee to your chest. Does it hurt? Where? Now compare with the worse hip.
Secondly, pull the knee towards the opposite shoulder. Stiff or very mobile? Sore? Where?
Now rotate the hips. Again hypermobile presumably and sore? Where?
Now, would you please go to this page and scroll down to Hypermobile hip dysplasia CAM FAIS
patrick's fabere test. I expect it's very mobile, but sore? Where?
Lastly, slide your thumb, use a little oil, down the inner thigh starting right up near the hip in the groin. Deep and quite hard. Is it very sensititive. Compare with a friend. It shouldn't be particularly tender and in your case may be excruciating.
Your xray. Like I said too small, but I think I see small cam and pincer deformities of Femoro acetabular impingement syndrome in both hips.
There's a very bizarre condition in which hypermobility and fais co-exist in the hip. One causes increased movement, the other decreased movement, a complete contradiction. The net result is severe pain in the groin.
Both may progress to osteoarthritis of the hip and I think on the hip on the reading left there may be some thinning of the cartilage.
This condition may lead to mid lumbar pain. No back pain?
Was this X-ray taken with you lying down?
Quite a lot of questions for you, Marie. Please keep to the same thread with your answers.
There is something to be done.
