Hip, shoulder and groin pain

    I have had pain in my left side of my groin and top inside of my left thigh when moving my left leg for months.

    However, a few weeks ago I strained my lower back (left side of hip) when putting up a bed for my friend. The pain was constant and made worse when standing up and walking up and down stairs and getting out of car. Going to the toilet was a nightmare as my buttocks felt tight and I was getting extremely painful spasms when getting out of bed or up from sofa and trying to walk.

    Anyway, a couple of weeks later the pain has gone. However, I only now feel severe pain in the back of my hip when going out for a walk and shopping or standing in a queue when the pain can feel sharp and it radiates to the top front of my left thigh.

    I also have pain in my left shoulder and upper arm when I raise my arm up. I was thinking this could be TMS as I suffer from anxiety and panic disorder. I fear I might have osteoarthritis.

    Hip pain ! It's the worst I know. Try a day where you put lots of effort toward emotional scanning whenever your thinking about the pain. This could mean every hour of the day if it's an obsession like mine was. I found just by forcefully directing my attention toward my emotions (even if I can't feel anything specific) my pain would lessen slightly or even change. This gave me proof enough that my pain was most likely TMS and was comforting while I waited for the doc to give me the all clear. Low and behold doc said it's most likely fibromyalgia which as we know is in fact TMS so that was second peice of crucial evidence. Try and build up a case (like a legal case) against your pain to convince your mind it's trick can't fool you.
