I think this is quite common. I have the same problem but have found the Egoscue method to be very helpful, especially something called The Tower, which actually evens the hips over time as it also works on the psoas muscle which is a big contributor to uneven hips.

Re: one hip higher than other

It can be caused by a number of things. One is scoliosis. Your family doctor can easily check for this. Have you seen a doctor yet? Sounds like that might be in order.

I wish you the best,
Emily

Re: one hip higher than other

a chiropractor can fix this
it's usually from a muscle in the abdomen area that got shortened somehow, no biggie....
