My condition sounds similar and has been described as transient ischaemic osteoporosis. I have acute pain in the hip when weight bearing and an ache in the femoral bone. Onset was approx 8 weeks ago and the pain has steadily worsened to the point where I can no longer stand without crutches.

The advice I have received sounds the same as yours. i.e. no treatment other than pain relieving drugs. I am told that the condition resolves itself in 4 - 10 months, with the average being 7 months.

Try this article:-

although it uses another slightly different name for the condition it certainly describes my symptoms - and it sounds like there's nothing we can do but keep smiling - and wait.
