Brief Answer:
Get an X-ray of the hip joint done. Probable arthrosis!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information and am certainly concerned about a problem with the hip joint. I suspect a degenerative disease of the joint commonly referred to as arthrosis. To further investigate this, I will suggest you get an x-ray of the hip joints.

For now, pain medications such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen should help. If pain gets severe, we will need to use more potent pain drugs.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
