What could be the cause of this?

Just wondering if anyone might know what would be the cause of this intermittent left hip pain. It will come for a week at a time and disappear for months. Sometimes so badly the left side of my lower back hurts and the pain will go down the back of my leg into the back of my knee. It might pop up inbetween these weeks but not too bad. I went to the drs a year ago the first time it happened and nothing came of it. Thanks for any help!

Re: What could be the cause of this?

If the doctors couldn't find anything wrong with your hip, it sounds like it could be an intermittent case of sciatica, where pain runs along the buttock area, out to the side and down the leg, depending on what sciatic nerve root is irritated. It can come from something as simple as too much driving, sitting or sleeping in the wrong position, or from something else putting pressure on a nerve root in the spine.

I have hip pain right now, but it may be due to overuse or overexertion. I am currently taking 600 mg of ibuprophen as needed. I also sleep on the right side as well almost exclusively so thats a possible problem.
Hope you can get a Drs opinion real soon.
Regards
