Hip pain: If your hip hurts when you lay down on that side at night, could be a sign of bursitis. Should see your PCP

See details: You are likely describing low back pain even though your description is too vague to reach any conclusion. Have it evaluated.

Try stretching: At your age, such pain is likely trochanteric bursitis due to a tight IT band (if pain is on the side of the hip) or mild hip dysplasia/labral tear of hip (if the pain is at the bend of the hip- in the groin). Try stretching your IT band (there are many stretches illustrated on You Tube). If that doesnt help after a couple of weeks, you need to get an MRI of the affected hip

Possibly: Nothing protects against fractures better than avoiding the falls in the first place but hip pads can be helpful for someone who chronically falls. Using a walker, removing throw rugs, lighting poorly lit areas, balance training, and muscle strengthening with weight bearing exercise and proper nutrition are all parts of the prevention program.

Pinched nerve: Pinched nerve at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome) is a common cause for such symptoms. However other causes of peripheral neuropathy should be considered and ruled out by history, physical exam and some blood tests. Diabetes, thyroid disease and some medications are common causes. I suggest you discuss with your pcp.

Memories 14 yrs ago?: There is no way to tell without all the details from that time 14 years ago, so one can go see a new neurologist a couple of times to together decide if it is worthwhile to go back in time. Sometimes there is a need to know exactly what happened. Other times, patients can be treated according to their present status without fully knowing what really happened long ago.

Back off: Jeff - please find yourself a good doctor to talk to face to face. Do not keep sending the same questions. Set your mind at ease and resolve your conflicts. That will be the only way to resolve your concerns!
