Re: Severe Hip pain
do you limp on and off? have you ever (not a judgement, just a high risk category thing) been a drinker of alcohol or have had to use steroids-keep in mind asthma meds almost all, are steroids? If so be sure to tell you dr immediately. AVN is a possibility. When I was having trouble, same pain same place doc was guessing (before MRI) labral tear or AVN. Once he knew I was former social drinker (can no longer stomach it) and was put on a prednisone taper as well as inhalers, breathing treatments numerous times, they wanted to do the special MRI, arthrogram but my insurance wouldn't cover it. a side note-my son had the children's form starting at age 5-LCPD-and his pain as only in his knee.
Good luck and I hope this resolves quickly and painlessly as possible for you!
