What causes severe pain above the hip bone? - Online Doctor Chats
From your description it looks like a muscular pain
After looking at the anatomy chart, the muscle that supports the abdomen seems to be the area....the linquinal muscle?
In that area there are 3 muscles
that is external oblique
and transverse abdominis
It shows like a long tendon?
Is the pain in the front or the side?
External oblique is attached to the hip bone
Left side between the waist line and top of hip bone
most likely cause would be some unnoticed sprain
If the CT scan showed nothing then it is nothing serious
You would need a couple of weeks to recover
during this time you will need plenty of rest
no bending or lifting
no twisting movements of your hips
Take a combination of good painkiller and muscle relaxant
OK. I understand that there is no life threatening diagnosis. I would love to be able to walk upright without a walker and severe pain.
Apply ice to the area about 3 to 4 times day (10 to 15 minutes each time)
I have several....do you have any recommendations of names
Alternate ice application with hot compress twice
I am not aware of the brand names i available in your country
The contents should be Aceclofenac+Chlorzoxazone
Please do not walk or do any exercises for 2 weeks
you need to give it time to heal
you need rest
once the pain reduces you can resume your walking
and follow my other recommendations as well
you will be alright pretty soon
is there anything else I can help you with?
It is a trial of my nerves not being able to be mobile since at my age I am usually ok
I can understand your urge to be up and about
Trust me, giving some rest will most certainly help
Would you recommend a MRI or is that useless
It will be mostly useless
if something was to be found it would have been found on the CT
Thank you. I found this to help me.
You are most welcome
Thanks for consulting me here
have a great evening ahead
and take rest
You too....what country are you in
I am in India, (Bangalore)
Sure is mam, thank you
Thank you again for your help
It was my pleasure
