What causes tingling and numbness in right hip and pelvic area?
Cause of right hip pain and burning sensation
Hi XXXX, thanks for asking from HCM.
I can understand your concern. The focal burning, tingling sensation over right hip could be due to various causes like
: Bursitis - It is a fluid filled covering over prominent parts of bone which prevents bone damage while doing movements. It can get inflamed due to overuse.
It causes pain on pressure over hip, night pain.
: Osteoarthritis - It means hip joint degeneration and inflammation. It occurs due to age, wear and tear. It causes pain on walking, standing prolonged duration and running.
: Tendinitis - Tendinitis is inflammation of the band of tissue that connects muscles to bones. It causes pain on movement.
: Sciatic nerve or L1-2 nerve root involvement - It leads to severe burning pain, current like sensation, more pain on forward bending/sitting/standing and some relief in lying down (especially in prone position).
You can correlate your features and suspect. To manage it, you need to consult "Orthopaedician". He will evaluate your pain, hip, movements and range at hip, sensation over hip. After it, he will be able to make some differential diagnosis from above mentioned list. To confirm diagnosis, he may advise few tests like
: X ray hip joint
: MRI of hip and lower back (lumbar region)
After confirming diagnosis, complete treatment can be given.
Hope it will help you. If still in doubt, do let me know.
Thanks. Take care.
Thank you very much.
Pain reliever medication
Hi XXXX, welcome back
You can follow few tips for pain relief other than OTC medication
: Avoid pressure at hip. Lie on left lateral position.
: Apply cold compresses if features are like arthritis or bursitis. While warm compresses helps in relieving pain in neuropathy.
: Apply painkiller gel like Diclofenac gel at burning pain site.
: Consult physiotherapist for stretching of muscles, strengthening exercise. It will help in sharing load and thus reduce burden on joint.
There are some other therapies which are specific for disease. I will briefly describe them once some conclusion is made.
Hope it will help you.
