Hello. I have had pain in the area of the joint between my right hip and pelvis for the last two days. It is a sharp pain, and very localized. There is one spot that particularly hurts when pressed, and there is a little bit of swelling and hardness. There is no redness or discoloration or bruising.

It does not hurt when I stand on that leg, but it hurts a lot when I twist the leg slightly or try to lift it up by bending at the hip. It is very painful to, for example, get up from/sit on my bed. There is no pain if I sit with my legs straight out.

The pain started while I was walking, but was at first a weak pain, and increased over the next few hours. There was no apparently injury. After sleeping last night, the pain increased.

I am a 20 year old female. If anyone has an idea as to what this pain may be, it would be greatly appreciated.

  • i am almost positive you are talking about something called your hip flexor. ive had trouble with it before, and the chiropractor gave us a list of stretches to do to make the pain go away.

  • A combination of postural changes, the growing baby, unstable pelvic joints under the influence of pregnancy hormones and changes in the centre of gravity can all add to the varying degrees of pain or discomfort. In some cases it can come on suddenly or following a fall, sudden abduction of the thighs (opening to wide too quickly)or an action that has strained the joint. PGP can begin as early as the first trimester of pregnancy. Pain is usually felt low down over the symphyseal joint, this area may be extremely tender to the touch. Pain may also be felt in the hips, groin and lower abdomen and can radiate down the inner thighs. You may waddle or shuffle, and may be aware of an audible clicking sound coming from the pelvis. PGP can develop slowly during pregnancy, gradually gaining in severity as the pregnancy progresses
