ITA. Have you looked into transient synovitis?

DD had this when she was 3 years old. She didn't complain of pain, but she could not walk.

ETA: I posted before realising this was a 200+ posts thread... I haven't read all of it.

choochoo, I understand. It's a big long six month thread!

I have never heard of that (I have heard of other infections that settle or develop in the hip. I don't THINK I've specifically heard of this one). Your daughter didn't have any pain or didn't complain about it? DD has had no pain with this at all, ever. She doesn't appear to have any numbness or reflex problems. She could also jump on her trampoline and ride her bike the whole time. She's been sick a few times, but never had fever that wasn't directly related to whatever illness she had at the time. I hope your daughter is doing well now!

It's been a long winter.

hugs. i read only half of the thread by now.

DD's didn't last that long. She had no pain, but limped and couldn't walk. We took her in on the second day, and the family dr said it was probably transient synovitis. i don't rememberif she was given any meds? maybe. but she was better in a few days. She's almost 8 now, never had this issue again.

Thanks for the update! Glad things continue to improve.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

Wow, what a roller coaster of a half-year your family has had! I'm so glad to read that your daughter is doing so well! Thank you for sharing your journey. I'll be following along and I'm adding my thoughts and prayers to the bunch already being sent and said.

I have seen this thread a few times (and read the whole thing). I am so glad your DD is doing better. If the PT thought it was nerve impairment, might I suggest acupuncture? I don't know how well that would work with a 4 year old, but acupuncture is amazing. (It solved my infertility.) If you have a local practitioner you could call and ask some questions - it might be worth it and it is a totally natural approach!
