How can severe pain in the hips be treated?

Hi I had my hip replaced in 2008 and on the right side I ve been telling my regular doctor that its never stop or even eased the pain after the replacement like the left side it s gotten worse to the point where I can t be still in bed to get some relief I use several pillows in between my legs and it would help some but it is to the point of keeping me awake and its becoming so severe it s bringing me to the point of if I don t get some relief I just cannot go on like this . But from day one it was put in I ve been in more pain than ever before .My doc say s its all in my head because both of the hips I received was on the recall list but its strange the left one is fine it s the right side and if things don t get better then well I can t keep this up

See, we need to know whether you have avascular necrosis of the hip causing you all these symptoms or not.

I can understand your pain but you need understand that after necessary testing and examining if we could not find any problem in your hips then it's all in your mind.

Yes, your mind is causing you this pain. If you want to get out of it I can tell you few things which can help you come out of this entire situation.

First, do some breathing exercises every day and then regular hand arm exercises or walking for some time. Do some meditation every day.

Start a new habit, listen to songs, movies, involved in sports, indoor-outdoor games, involve in new plans and schemes to improve your life. Read good books and newspapers, television etcetera.

If you still feel the pain, you can take some painkillers for some time like Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Diclofenac, Tramadol, etcetera.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
