What causes pain in the hips on the right side?

I m having pain in my right hip area. It s an aching pain near where my thigh and panty line would be. I m not sure if it might be near where my ovary would be or if it might be joint related. I completed menopause very early. (47). I get annual Pap smears and physicals. I ve scheduled my pap but I can t see the Dr until 6 weeks. It s a rainy day here and I ve had some pain in the area. I m not sure if it s gyn or arthritis . Silly, but I m a little worried.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It may be pyriformis syndrome in which moving of the leg out and away from the body may cause pain. Other possibilities like arthritis or snapping hip or stress fracture of femoral neck etc.
Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use muscle relaxant s, limb elevation. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query.

I have been experiencing pain in my right hip on the side only when I lie down on that side. Sometimes it also hurts when I turn over on the left side and the right hip is on top . Pain location is right about where my wrist is when I am standing with my arms down at my sides. I do yoga once a week and walk 2-3 times a week about 2 miles each time. No pain during these activities. Why does this hip keep me awake at night?
