About 3 years ago a tractor accident left me with a broken hip on the left side that was allowed to heal on its own without surgery. Other than severe brusing no other injuries were substained. Lately I have been experiencing pain in various joints of my body(shoulder, right hip, right foot etc.) could these pains be related to my accident or could something else be going on? Someday I have trouble walking due to the pain in my right foot and sleeping is difficult because i can not get comfortable.
Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the pain in the right shoulder, right foot and right hip.
These joint pains seem unrelated to the accident injury sustained by you.
3 years back. You must consult your personal physician for the thorough work up to rule out causes of joint pain such as connective tissue diseases, arthritides etc. as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
