Hip Pain???

Hi all, I'm a 38 year old male in fairly good health and have been getting this terrible pain in my hip when I lie on that side when sleeping.

The pain actually wakes me, then if I roll over or get up the pain goes after about 15 - 20 minutes.

I don't have any problens during the day, only when I'm lying on it.

Has anyone had this problem or know what it could be. My doctor wasn't very helpful..

Re: Hip Pain???

Yes, I have had this problem and I was diagnosed with bursitis. First my doctor had me taking an anti-inflammatory and it was making me sick to my stomach, so he finally gave me an injection of cortisone into the bursa and it finally got better. If you have bursitis, expect it to take a while to heal. But if your stomach can tolerate the anti-inflammatory, I'd try that first because it's the best treatment. I'm familiar with the pain you are experiencing and I truly sympathize with you. Hope it's better soon.

Re: Hip Pain???

Oh symptoms exactly! That's why I just now logged in, to see if I could find some answers. My pain starts on my left buttock and moves to the front upper thigh area. It is SO much worse when trying to sleep. I have no problems weight bearing at all. I can flex/extend my leg with no problems.....yet that deep nagging pain is there. Thanks for any input.

Re: Hip Pain???

My husband had hip pain that was related to Lipitor. If you are on statin drugs beware any unusual pain anywhere.

Wow, I'd never thought about joint pain being caused by a drug. Thanks for bringing that up. Interesting.

Re: Hip Pain???

AH HA !!!!!!!!!!! I've had hip pain for a while now (month or two) ... if I take Nurofen (an iboprufen product) I sleep. If not, I wake up 3am in agony. Doesn't matter WHAT position I'm in .. that dull ache happens.

Felt like a wimp asking the doctor. He just said lose some weight.

Interesting .. it happens elsewhere!!
