Hi,

Welcome back to healthcare magic Physician's desk!
Pain in the pelvic bones is very unusual, in fact the flat bone pains are indicative of Multiple Myeloma, a rare malignant disease.
Please get your blood tests for CBC, ESR, CRP and Serum Electrophoresis and Urine to be tested for Bence Jone's Proteins.
And also review to a physician for a detailed physical examination because it will provide valuable clues to diagnosis and would be helpful in further management.

I think the advise would be helpful for you.

If you still have queries if any, please feel free to communicate back.

Follow-up: Hip bone pain, worsens after sitting for a while after a walk 57 minutes later
This condition came on very suddenly, like in the last week and a half, would that be indicative of what you are suggesting?

Hi XXXXXX,

Welcome back to healthcare magic Physician's desk!
It can be present for long but becomes symptomatic like that.
Because it is a serious kind of disease needs to be ruled out first before we can think of conservative treatment.

I think the advise would be helpful for you.

If you still have queries if any, please feel free to communicate back.

Wish you a great XXXXXXX
