Brief Answer:
Renal stones

Detailed Answer:
Hi, the pain you are describing appears to be a renal calculus (stone ). It appears to be passing down and trying to come out. Please get ultrasound scan of your abdomen to check for the same. Let me follow up with that report. Let me know if you have any more queries. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

The location is down by my left hip joint in the front and then over about 4 to 5 inches from that. I notice mostly when I move a certain way, mostly when I sit down. Is it possible to be a hernia of some type or do you still fill it stone.

Brief Answer:
yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi, hernia wont have the characteristic pain you have. It is typical of stones. If you guess its hernia, any doctor can easily diagnose just by examination. I hope your doubt is cleared. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
