What Causes Severe Pain In The Hips While Walking?
needs further evaluation
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..
How was your day?
Hope this message finds you in good health.
I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern.
I generally see many cases like this at my clinic.I give them rest,analgesics,anti-inflammatory tablets and ice pack till the symptoms reduce to some extent. Then i get an xray and if necessary an mri done to find out the exact reason.
In your case,there are 3 possibilities-
POSSIBILITY 1. SOFT TISSUE INFLAMMATION- there may be no bony involvement,only the soft tissues around the region might be inflammed that may be causing the pain
POSSIBILITY 2. NEUROPATHY / MUSCLE WEAKNESS- there may be a partial or complete inflammation of the nerves in that region that may be the root cause of such kind of pain.Also, low calcium and vitamins can cause such muscular pain in the legs ,especially thighs
POSSIBILITY 3. DISC PROLAPSE-there may be a compressed a nerve in the spine somewhere that might be causing radiating pain in those regions.Possibility of a disc prolapse should be kept in mind.
I suggest you get an Xray as well as an MRI done to find out the exact cause.
blood investigations, including calcium and vitamin D levels should be assessed.
Physiotherapy,analgesics,anti-inflammatory drugs should help till then.
Do get back to me after ur reports are ready.
You should eventually get back to normal in coming few days.Nothing to worry about.
I hope your question has been answered.
Feel free to consult me anytime for follow-up queries.
Take care,God bless.
Wish you a healthy life : )
