Brief Answer:

Hip pain

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I'm generally very healthy just came out of the blue.

=== Osteochondritic pain can come up like this. It is better to get the joint Xrayed. See if the space between surfaces is reduced.

You can continue to take Ibuprofen as bone pains take longer time than usual to respond to over the coutner preparations.

Make sure to add anti gastritis medication like PRILOSEC OTC one hour before breakfast daily till the time you take Ibuprofen.

You should rest the joint completely until the pain becomes zero else the pain would not subside or tend to come back. A walking stick would certainly help till the pain subsides.

If you do not have help at home it is important to seek one immediately. Please see to it that you do not injure more.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
