Brief Answer:
hip pain

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
It sounds like the pain is coming from your hip. It may be that you have a bad arthritis in the right hip. You need to see your doctor and start with an xray of the hip. If that is not abnormal then you may need imaging of the spine or possibly an MRI to determine the cause.
If it is the hip then a steroid injection may help or you may need a surgery. See your doctor as soon as possible to get the testing to figure out the cause.
You will only be able to be treated once the cause of your pain is found.
Regards,
Dr. Robinson

Brief Answer:
maybe

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for your feedback.
Osteoporosis usually does not cause pain unless there is a fracture. Is a hip fracture possible, yes especially if there has been any trauma (even minor) so you definitely need at lease an xray of that hip
I hope you get relief soon
