i thought this would go away, but it is getting worse. Years ago I was a jogger, 6 mikes a day, great shape, happy. Now, at 62, I long for a night of sleep without sharp, excruciating pain running from my hips down my entire leg. It is mostly at night, though after riding in a car it is very hard to get started walking sometimes. Both sides and the only relief is to lay on my back, which I can only do a little while at a time. I am so tired of this, and it is so depressing. I do not like or trust doctors and can't hardly stand the thought of going from one to another to figure this out.
