Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

I have studied your case.

Pain along hip joint indicates possibility of hip arthritis.
Hip arthritis can be degenerative or due to avascular necrosis of femoral head [AVN].
I will advise you do X ray of hip and you can consult me with reports or with your doctor.
You may need MRI hip.
Till time take analgesic and cartilage protecting medication like glucosamine sulphate.
