Pain in right hip bone, feels like it is bruised, no injury. History of lupus. Cause of worry?

I am 33 years old female and have lupus . Yesterday I started feeling a pain in my right hip bone like it is bruised especially when i touch it. I get joint and muscle pain quite often but this is different. It really feels like a bruise is there but there is nothing. And I haven t hit myself against anything either. I ve been to the doctor a couple of times last week for something else and now I just feel stupid for going in for this. What do you think it could be or should do thank you

Thanks for the query

Never feel stupid to go to your doctor for any your problem as your doctor is your best friend that listens to your problems very humbly and is honest to sort them out

The hip bone pain are commonly a result of the sciatic nerve compression or lumber vertebrae compression. The bursitis is uncommon for this region. Simple analgesics will help you in relieve of symptoms however if you still have the problem persistent then it is recommended to visit your doctor for proper checkup
