1 1/2 years ago I did a half marathon and trained through hip pain. I took a 5 week break then started running again until my hip got so bad it hurt to walk, with pain on the outside of the hip focused on a single point, feels like right where my joint is. When I stretch the hip and it pops it hurts much more. Seen multiple doctors, each time a new diagnosis; one suggested I have an inflamed ligament that pops over the bone when I run, which seems to make sense. Gave me a cortisone shot which helped a lot, I was able to run 10 minutes without pain (before I couldn't run 2 steps!). Also physical therapy with ultrasounds. I began running only on flat surfaces and short distances but my hip never got better, just less bad temporarily. Still can't run. 5 months ago my knees started hurting, particularly when I dance (I dance for 10 hours at a time sometimes, very intensively, using my whole body). I started wearing knee braces when I dance. Recently they became so bad I can't dance, even with much better knee braces, my knees occasionally pop, they are a bit swollen, and hurt more on the insides. Also months ago, as I couldn't run, I started swimming, until my shoulder started bothering me. It finally got too painful so I stopped swimming and push ups. Did not swim for 5 weeks, swam once very lightly, a few laps, afterwards I couldn't move my shoulder. I've been swimming once a week, lightly, for three weeks but now it's back to being very painful. I've been applying anti inflammatory cream to my hip, knees and shoulder for 1 week and powerful anti inflammatory pills, 3 a day. Starting physical therapy in a week. I can't run, dance, or swim....I can't even do freaking low impact exercise videos!!! Help what is wrong with my body, I'm only 21. Could this be systemic? Any ideas??

Thanks to anyone who actually read all of that !! and has thoughts on what might be wrong...

Hi, I'm new to the forum, and just saw this. Not sure if you've received help or not, but have you been tested for any type of autoimmune disorders?
