Have been experiencing pain in both hips while in bed at night. Wakes me up when I roll over on either side. This came on suddenly as opposed to gradually. Anyone else dealing with this? Unfortunately, I am not in a position to see a doctor. If I take ibuprofen an hour before bed, it helps somewhat but trying to figure out how it started in the first place.
In my research I have read that Menopause can bring on muscle/tendon soreness-pain, etc. I've been dealing with a back issue, which is muscular and basically caused by tight,sore muscles. It appeared pretty much at the beginning of Menopause and I work daily to stretch my hamstrings and quads. Do you do daily stretches? Are you in a regular exercise routine like yoga or pilates? It may be beneficial for you if you aren't. Other than that, a doctor would be able to help you diagnose your hip issue if it's something else.
Ugh, yes I had a lot of problems with both hips at night as well. I learned last month that I am very vitamin D deficient. That pain went on for months and months and then finally stopped and I have no idea why. It was probably related to perimemopause somehow. I wish I had some advice - just know you aren't alone. Vitamin D is pretty cheep (use amber capsules not pills, per my GYN) and 1,000 mg isn't too much if you are deficient.
