Lab results were normal, which included:
CBC, TSH, Vitamin D, PTH, calcium.
Radiological imaging was ordered, as the nature of pain was unclear due to a benign exam.
Right Hip X-ray: On the frontal view, the cortical margin of the inferior pubic ramus appears heterogenous and fragmented when compared to contralateral side. Case Photo #1
MRI of Right Hip: There is abnormal high signal associated with the right and left ischial tuberosity. This is more prominent on the right. This is thought to be related to a stress fracture. The surrounding musculature is intact. All other major structures normal. Case Photo #2, Case Photo #3
Aside from the previous consults prior to being seen, only physical therapy was ordered.
