What would be the difference between hip and pelvic pain? I have 2 different kinds of pain, one seems to be in the hip joint, but another more sharp pain in the back of what I would call my hips but I guess it would be considered my pelvis actually? Does anyone know the actual difference between hip and pelvic pain? I know the technical term for the one in the back is "sacroiliac joint" but is this pelvic or hip pain? I just started thinking about it today and wondering if what I was calling hip pain could actually be pelvic pain because I read about a lot of you guys on here having "pelvic pain" but never really heard of many people here having "hip pain". Maybe I'm just nuts here, but I was just wondering if I was just classifying it wrong, or perhaps just overreacting and they're really just the same thing.. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks everyone for any info you can give on this matter! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/love1.gif
