I'm a 34 year old male that suddenly was stricken with buttock and excruciating hip pain. I've had X-rays of my hip and lower spine, mri of lower lumbar and CT of pelvis with contrast. Of course everything has come back showing nothing. The mri showed no bulging discs or anything like that. I'm get in so much pain now in the hips and buttocks I take hydrocodone twice a day. I'm currently in my 4th week of PT and all the stretches and exercises don't decrease the pain.
I really think my muscles are just weakening in my hips and lower back now. I don't have pain that goes down my leg :confused:. It's on both hips, started on the right hip.
Anyone have a clue of what it might be? Hoping to get a hip MRI.

Lifestyle:
mostly sit at a desk 8 hours a day and drive 2 hours a day.

  • You may not be sitting with good posture at the computer. My own hip pain turned out to be actually due to lower back issues. Lower back problems, pain will often radiate into the hip and buttocks so you may not realise its actually coming from ones back. A chiropractor or a physio who also manipulates the spine may help. Stretching and exercises alone may not be enough. My hip pain which was extreme is now gone due to a good physio who also works like past chiropractors I used to have.

  • gentle manipulation of spine and a manuver where one of my legs was jerked suddenly and stretched. The correct manipulation can often bring instant relief. Followed up with being given exercises to help the supportive muscles around the spine get stronger so things stayed how they should be better..
