Brief Answer:
you may have arthritis in hip joint

Detailed Answer:
I have studied your case and I think you may have arthritis of the hip joint. This is common in above 60 years and so you need to get your x ray of the hip joint.
if there is reduction in joint space and there is destruction of the bone then it will confirm that you may have hip arthritis.
other common causes can be bursitis.
Till you get your hip x rays I would suggest you to get hot water fomentation, tablet Brufen 400 mg daily.
I hope these steps will be helpful for you.Let me know if there is any other followup questions.

I am Dr.Ramesh Babu, Ph.D in law. Practicing High Court Advocate.
I was treated for Kochs right hip in 1978 when I was 20 years old. Problems at that time were weight loss, high fever, passing pain from right hip to toe, narrowing of bone space. Put on ATT (Pass granules) Steptopenciline and traction for six months. ESR was very high in 2nd hour. Recovered from fever and however the hip damaged and movements are restricted. Post treatment x-ray readings are sub-scondrol scelorsis, irregular artricular places, secondary oesteoarthritis, narrowing of bone space. Doctor suggested fro osteoactamy and fixing the joint at that time. I am managing for more than 3 decades without operation. Recently doctors advised for joint replacement. However comfortably managing with yoga and exercise and weight management. Slight limping is there. NO pain. In three decades the entire bone space is closed and head of hip fixed in the right pelvis. Rotating movements totally closed. Front and back movements are free. I am able to go by walk every year to SAbarimalai hills. I can walk 30 km without break. Recent x-ray show some cavities in the head of the right femer. (top of right hip). Though I am a living example to who can show how to maintain the hip arthritis without operation at times I opine expert advice from Doctors like you. I am now 54 years. Please suggest some more better ways of managing the present hip without operation.
Thanking you.

A friend bought Volfenac diclofenaco gel from Mexico, which was given to me to try on my hip arthritis, and my pulled neck muscle. Seems to work very well. I have looked for indications/interaction with other drugs/and so on. Is there another form of this in the U.S.A., that doesn t cost over $100??

Hello Dr. Grief, my name is Rjnm,,ee and I was wondering your thoughts on hip arthritis. I am 47 y.o. female, 5 9 weighing 255 ( most I have ever weighed) with hip arthritis that has become worse over the last year to the point where I am having a hard time walking. I have just started aqua therapy yesterday and today was the worst pain I have had. One doctor is ready to do a total hip replacement and the other thinks I am too young.
