Their is also the possibility of me having both an anatomical leg length discrepancy as well as a functional one. So my right leg is anatomically shorter than my left and its also sucked up into the pelvis due to the tight hip capsule. 

In regards to standing around. I dont notice myself leaning to a particular side. Also, during assessments from the various health practitioners they havent noticed that either. Perhaps I can ask my physiotherapist to check for this. 
Wouldn’t a short leg cause a person to lean towards the short leg?
