This pain started maybe six months ago. I was only once in awhile and did not last long. But for the last week or so it has bothered me every day. At times it is very intense and it causes me to limp a bit. It bothers me when I get up from a seated position also. I do not like taking drugs and I have avoided any. I cannot use ice and that only makes it worse. Heat is the only thing that seems to help as well as staying off my feet. What do you suggest I do?
