Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
1. Pain in left side of hip, progressing to numbness and difficulty in walking warrants a thorough physical examination by an orthopaedic +/- neurosurgeon consultation,
2. It is most probably a intervertebral disc prolapse compressing the nerve roots,
3. MRI scan of lumbo-sacral region to rule-out IVDP / Sacroiliitis will help us guide on further management,
4. Resting on hard bed will help you decrease the pain.
