Do I have arthritis in my hip?
I know I'm young and only 13 but I've been having this dull ache/ bruise like pain in my left hip/femur area for awhile. I can't put pressure on it. Its been getting worse everyday. I've had it for almost an month. Exercise does not help. No matter what I'm doing or what I did, it still comes and goes. I want to see a doctor.. but my mom thinks I'm overreacting and she is acting like this isn't serious. She gets mad when I mention it. :/. She helps sometimes and asks questions, but still. She does not understand. She's recommended ice or a heat pack, but I don't think it'll work. Or she said Tyonol but I don't know. Can someone please help. Give suggestions? Anything. Please just help. I will honestly go crazy if this keeps up.
