I’ve been struggling with some pain in both hips and I’ve just got an appointment at the hospital with the orthopaedic team. My left hip is always very hot to the touch and sometimes after sitting I can’t always make it ‘click into place’ but my right hip is the one that shows the most degeneration. I am using a crutch because sometimes my right hip and leg gives way. I always thought arthritis was just all about pain. I’m worried about the appointment and wondering if I will be having a hip replacement soon. I think I feel a bit of a cheat because I’m not in constant pain unlike a lot of people. I do take strong painkillers sometimes so I can sleep but it’s not every night. I think I just want to know if arthritis affects people in different ways.
