Thanks for your query.

I suggest you to get a MRI of the hips done as soon as possible. It would get very serious if the joints get more inflamed or fused.

An MRI scan would help to identify the exact nature of the inflammation and help in formulating a treatment to get halt the process and get rid of the pain.

Meanwhile do restrict the movement in the affected joints. Do wear an Lumbosacral belt which helps to immobilize the joints and help in healing.

Hope, I answered your query.
