I am 20 years old and when I was 17 I was diagnosed with Benign Hypermobility Joint Syndrome (HMS) after having indescribable Hip/knee pain growing up that doctors dismissed for growing pains. My pain is much worse now than when I was younger, but I don't feel that HMS is the answer for me. I still believe something else is causing my pain, and if any of you could help me, that would be amazing. My hip pain is unlike any other pain I've had, and the best way I think I can describe it would be a tearing sensation, as I feel the constant need to crack the joint when in pain (which usually provides no release when I can). I experience excruciating pain everyday mostly in my left hip, but sometimes in my right hip and rarely in the back of my knees. I have had an MRI of my knees, of my hips, an MRA of my hips (which were apparently too fuzzy to read) as well as hundreds of x-rays. Chiropractic does not relieve my pain, I have also tried Bowen therapy and have even seen an osteopath in France. This pain severely impacts my day to day life and would love to be able to put a name to it even if there is no treatment.
