Rheumatoid factor just out of range at 20.2. Normal esr, ana. Bilateral hip pain, chest, and roaming pains in other joints, never swelling. Is it ra?

Unlikely : Rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed based on a number of criteria. All criterion has a point value. You must have 6 points to be diagnosed. What you described would be 2 points.

I had hip pain but was told I have a L6 and it is causing joint pain. Also, told one wrong move with weight on my back could break it? Is that true?

If there is one less pair of ribs or one extra motion segment in the sacrum, it is called by some as having "6" lumbar vertebra. ...Read more

How do you alleviate hip pain in a 15-year old with joint hypermobility?

Make a diagnosis: For a 15-year old to have hip pain you need a more definitive diagnosis than hyper mobility.

Consider also labral tear (rare in 15 year old) or impingement (cam lesion) also rare unless very intense dancer. ...Read more
