Thanks for writing in.
There can be several causes for your symptoms. If the pain is in the front, we should be looking to rule out conditions like avascular necrosis
, osteoarthritis, ileopectienal bursitis and rheumatoid arthritis
. If it is in the back of the hip, we should rule out sacroilitis, sciatic nerve irritation
and lumbar disc disease
. If its in the side of the hip, trochanteric bursitis
, osteoarthritis and lumbar disc disease needs to be considered.
If the Xray is normal, we need to do an MRI to find out what's going on.
Till then, I would suggest you use some support like a cane or a walker to walk. Its only when we know what's wrong can we begin the right treatment
Hope this helps
