anyone get hip/knee pain from this job?

I’m getting severe pain in many joints on my right side, understandable that i could blame the wrist/elbow/shoulder on the job. ..but what about hip/knee? I had blood drawn for lyme but haven’t gotten results yet. Massive anxiety over this – im only 30, i can’t lose my career already! Help!

I haven’t had knee pain, but hip pain radiating to my knee, yes! I have been diagnosed with sciatica not from hygiene but because of ballet years ago. I had an MRI of my hip and was tested for Lyme disease too. It hadn’t acted up for years until I became a hygienist. I used to go to physical therapy and have ultrasound therapy, massage, and stretching, but now I go to my chiropractor who uses a vibroprocusor. It acts up when I’m not sitting evenly on my chair; when I’m leaning on my right cheek perse. So watch your ergonomics! Stay in neutral position. Maybe changing to a saddle chair or another operator chair may help. Also, loupes help with the “leaning.” I’m 35, so I feel your anxiety! Find a good chiropractor and the best of luck to you!
