Subject: RE: loss of coordination in leg
Just by luck, thinking I had never considered anything structural in the hip and drawing at straws, thought, what the hell, I'll look into the hip labrum, went to a dr, and happened to have xrays that showed this massive tumor looking thing that could be the root of all my problems.
The next step was to have an MRI to confirm the calcification size and make sure it was limited to that spot, and others weren't up in the glut as well or in the adductor.
Unfortunately, the dr that took the xray thought the myositis was unimportant so my MRIs he wrote referrals for only looked for a hip labrum tear. (In his office for the initial appt where he took the xrays before writing the MRI referral he said, "I'm not going to call this myositis till I see it on an MRI. If this calcification was to blame for your injury, I'd expect you to have problems with extension and adduction while you're trying to run." Were you LISTENING? That is exactly what I said my problem is.) Once the MRI reports came back with no mention of anything other than "no evidence of labral tear", I asked for re-reads on the MRIs for any calcification in the soft tissues, but the addendum that came back said the imaging wasn't complete to see anything and to go get an xray if I thought it was myositis. Uh, yeah, thanks. Already had the xray and the MRI was to confirm. F*** you. To me your addendum means that even though you're supposed to be responsible for everything on the hip MRI, you skimped on the scans you took and didn't take a complete hip MRI. You just took the images that would allow you to see the labrum. Great. What do you care? In your eyes, I'm not a customer that has paid money for something- you just judge me to be some uneducated patient that needs to be hurried on their way and disregarded because the doctor always knows best. Yeah right. This is why I've been injured this long... I'll just move on to another doc to get another referral and redo the MRI.
Ugh. ANYWAY, my point in all this is that I was wondering if any of you have ever had your hips looked at while trying to get to the bottom of your loss of coordination injuries? If you went in to a dr for an xray to check for a hip stress fracture, the way they take the film, it would show any calcification at the proximal end of the femur. It was mere chance that I ever even saw the lump at the top of my femur. It looks like a lump with webbing. I know most of you think I've cried wolf so many times now with all my ideas and could give two shits was my latest theory is, but if any more of you have this same symptom, it could be the common connection between all of us that we're looking for...
