Hello ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Pain in hip can be due to injury;inflammation;infections of bone or joint and many such reasons.First you let us know your age and if you have any other complaint or associated symptom along with pain.The better option will be to get a physical examination done by a doctor/Orthopaedician and he will exactly give you an idea or advise investigation like X-ray of hip to see if there is any abnormality.Till you see a doctor you can take a painkiller to reduce the pain.
Thanks

I noticed a dark bruise just above my left hip bone a couple weeks ago and don t remember how I did it. Since then it has gone away but my left side has been feeling very sensitive since I noticed the bruise....every once and awhile i ll get a small pain but mostly it just feels sensitive and uncomfortable.....almost a burning sensation at times. Sitting in my computer chair is the most uncomfortable. I ve also noticed my chest bone/sternum to be very sensitive at times....almost like it was inflamed and makes it difficult to take in a deep breath. Any suggestions would be appreciated? Thank you

A 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet ( 2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption ( 3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?

I have had blood work, MRI, X-ray which doctors claim cannot substantiate what I am feeling. This all began out of blue 3 years ago July, and headaches were the first symptom.

My dad broke his femur a couple of weeks ago (he s hospitalized oversees), the surgeon did not want to operate probptly because he was taking blood thinners. After 4 days, he did the surgery. His doctor installed a rod in his leg. 3 days later, my dad started to run high fevers (102.2). his doctors cultured his blood, urine, stool, took an x-ray of his lungs, x-ray of his wound.

Nothing is working. yesterday, his doctor seem puss coming out of the wound. The doctor said that he s never experienced puss that looks like the one my dad has. Any thoughts/advise will be greatly appreciated

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?
