Do you know of anything you might have done before the pain started, anything that might have triggered it?
I'd say the pain lasts for about a day or half a day (severe) then after resting it overnight and stretching it the next day is fine.
The pain is gone now so I'm not worried about it as much... just curious as to what exactly is going wrong!
If I try to stretch it out, there is severe and immediate pain, and the more I stretch the worse it gets. Doesn't seem to help. I tried to keep moving to keep it stretched and loose (by taking periodic walks) but it didn't seem to help. After laying still for a while it would feel better. I only used heat, that seemed to help.
It seems that both times it came after having rested my foot on the opposite leg (which put pressure on the affected hip) and having sex for quite a while (thrusting = putting pressure and stressing hip area)
My mom was born with hip displaysia, however I was screened as a baby and supposedly don't have it. also the symptoms don't quite match, so I don't think it's that. THe other thing i was suggested is bursitis, but the pain is more internal (around the hip in the socket, and also a little down through the femur area), so it sounds like it's not that. Thanks for your time
