Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you are having are likely to be due to inflammation of the hip joint and the ligaments surrounding it. Adequate pain killers and muscle relaxants with regular hot fomentation usually provide relief. It usually does not need a treatment on emergency basis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
