Avascular Necrosis of Hip

Nov 09, 2018 11:00 AM

Anyone familiar with this? Any suggestions on how to deal with it and delay a hip replacement? I've had pain & popping for over 2 years. But now I'm in severe pain with limited range of motion. The doc suspects AN after examined and listening to me describe my symptoms. I get an MRI near Thanksgiving to see for sure. I'm praying it's not that but something much simpler to treat.

I'm sorry you're going through that. Praying it's something simpler. Happy Thanksgiving.

Prayers and love 🙏

Thanks AnimalLover2 & Kew2012. I'm trying to research it and my meds. The doc actually alluded to several of my meds being possible additions to the problem, including my gabapentin for fibromyalgia. Makes me wonder.

If you have fibromyalgia then a gluten free diet will help w inflammation.

Thanks Zetarlov. I'm looking into dietary changes to reduce my inflammation. I hadn't thought about gluten.
