    Does any one know of a cause for hip/joint pain in a teenage girl?? I don't do any sports and we got an ex ray and it came back "clean" :confused: the test for lime is not back yet but I am getting fed up with this! It hurts all the time and get worse when I walk or sit in one position for to long, I'm just not sure what it could be do you think i could be d related? I didn't think so at first but you never know.....

    How long have you been having it? I have RA (rheumatoid arthritis--also autoimmune) and it started in my left elbow then progressed to left knee, then right side. I hope it isn't that, for your sake. I would say rest, ice, and use an antiinflammatory if you can and then see your doctor.

    My 13-year-old non-D daughter has spondylitis, which is a type of arthritis. That is the first thing that popped into my mind too. Maybe a referral to a rheumatologist is something you could suggest to your doctor?

    Is it a particular position you are sitting in, or any position you sit in for so long?

    I suggest you go to a chiropractor because when my lower back/pelvis get misaligned it hurts and I get pinched nerves. And cut out all artificial ingredients from food you eat - dyes, artificial sugars, MSG, high fructose corn sugar, etc. My dd gets joint pain and she thinks it's from these ingredients.

    You need to see a physio or a sports med doctor and have your gait analyzed . Improper alignmetn while walking can cause this - can be as simple as orthotics and/or new shoes. You also need to see if things like the IT band are too tight etc., whether your posture is off etc etc these can all cause joint pain.
    Have you had any infections like strep throat? sometimes the toxins can move into the joints even weeks after the antibiotics are done which can cause the pain.THis happened to my daughter and she couldn't even walk it was so painful!
    Lastly, if there is any question see and ORTHOPEDIC doctor ( personally I would not even consider seeing a chiropractor till this is done - ) Good luck

    no paticular posion, For a while it went away (why I havent replied to this thread until now) but its been off and on for a while, sitting in any posion can make it hurt all day, right now its really bad, and has been so for three days

    I would definitely see an Orthopedic doctor,if you can..There are many things
    that could be going on with her,My son has Perthese Disease in his hip.Now that was diagnosed at age 5.He did however,present pain on and off for months before.Looking back,I would have taken him to a specialist sooner than we did.Hoping for the best..

    I had joint pains for roughly a year and it was suggested that it could be early RA but it could also be growing pains- the fancy name is Osgood Schlotter's. I was done growing at the time, but just barely. Since the pains mostly are gone, I guess it was OS :confused:
