I was given Solumedrol IV for hip and groin pain. It took the pain away completely!

I struggled with hip and leg pain for a period of three years. At first it didn't seem to bother me too much, I had a kind of dull pain in my left outer hip area which would occur if I stood up in the one spot for more than 10 minutes. Gradually the pain would progress and affect me in more ways for example at work sitting down, climbing a stairs or while exercising and sleeping. My diagnosis was hip bursitis, and the only thing that worked to get rid of the pain was a product called serrapeptase.

Well, I have worked in construction all my life as a plumber, climbing up and down ladders carrying heavy pipes for all different types of work. My problem is my left hip, it only hurts when the weather changes like when it is about to rain or cold coming, that's when it hurts the most, left side only. But if I take pain pills it helps, I just don't like taking pills so looking for a better way to deal with this left side hip pain.

I struggled for a very long time with pain in my hips. I was looking to fix my pain without surgery. I found a set of simple exercises which help me stretch my tight hip flexors without having to pay a physician or therapist.
