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.
