Brief Answer:
Possibly Hip/spine pathology

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic,

Pain radiating from hips to knee could be due to hip/spinal problems.

Any hip pathology like arthritis or spinal problems like disc prolapse, arthritis of the spine, spinal stenosis etc can present with such symptoms.

Physical examination, Xray of Hip joint and spine, MRI spine are indicated at this point.
Please be advised to follow up with an orthopedician for further evaluation and management.
Meanwhile, you can continue Norco and also add Ibuprofen for added pain relief.

Hope this answers your question

Regards
Dr.Lekshmi
