Inflammation: It seems that the CRP reflects mild to moderate inflammation somewhere. It is nonspecific. RF reflects autoantibody presence. Could be joint related. Could also be nonrelated to hip discomfort. I think deeper eval can help sort this out, yes. Then you and doc can know ...Read more

I may have sacrioliac ligament sprain. I waken from sleep with a strong dull ache in my left hip to knee. Sitting is painful. Also sciatica symptoms.

Pyriformis & Hypermobility Syndromes come to mind. See Osteopath for diagnosis. ...Read more
