I have had right hip pain and lower back pain for 2 years now. I have been to a chiropractor and have had therapy. The pain never goes away. It is swollen and sometimes tender to the touch. I was told once it was bursitis. If I walk or stand for a while it hurts. If I stand up sometimes it catches and boy does that hurt. Now I am sitting and it is hurting and it feels as if a muscle is pulled on the back side of my thigh. What can I do, or take to help this. WIll it ever go away. I am 40 years old and I am to young to be suffering through this daily.
Thanks to anyone that can help me or give me advice.:confused:

  • It would be a good idea to go to a bone doc.If you are taking Tylenol, Advil or any other over the counter med, stop taking it.You can do a lot of damage.If the pain is chronic and the condidtion is permanent, talk to your regular docotr about a pain med.

  • I have the same pains and catching in my right hip. I was diagnosed with a Sacroliliac Joint strain. My PT gave me several exercises to strenghten the muscles and help keep the tendons flexible.

  • Do you have groin pain? Does your hip give out? Catching may be from a tendon or it could be caused by the acetabular rim (if I remember correctly) a fibrous cartilage in hip jt. I had hip dysplasia and had catching and giving out-had hip scoped a couple times and helped for a short period then had it fixed by specialist. I would go see an orthopedic specialist and ask around for one that specializes in hips and not just hip replacement. Stretching and exercise may be helpful if it is SI jt problem-also there are certain injections that can help with SI (sacroiliac jt problems). Hope this is helpful in some way.Good Luck
