Nightly Hip Pain

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.

Re: Nightly Hip Pain

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.

Mine is on the right side of the tummy and lower and upper back. Sometimes along the spine in the back. Worst at night

Re: Nightly Hip Pain

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.
