History of trauma?
Have you seen a doctor so far?
Since how long have you been suffering from?
Are you overweight?
Any other medical history?
Are you taking any medications?
no recent trauma comes to mind, I have had this pain for about 10 years, it just gets worse every year... I did take a bad fall down some stairs, never got an x ray but after that my hip pain got worse. Also I did do some dance and cheerleading when I was younger
I have seen multiple doctors on this issue, no one takes me seriously say I am too young, they say rest it and take advil and see them if it gets worse. So far I have been told it could be an overuse injury or possibly bursitis.
It may or may not be related but also on my left side I have worsening knee pain (mainly right behind the knee and deep under the knee cap) it is achy and sometimes flares up so it is hard to put pressure on, extending the knee all the way out also causes pain. Also I have very tight calf muscles that constantly ache (both calves), have knots, hurt to touch and generally hurt to walk on most days, however the hip is the main concern.
Also I am hypothyroid from hashimotos and on hormone therapy for that
Hello,Thanks for providing more information.
I understand your concern and i strongly advise not ignore your symptoms as such and you may require proper treatment rather than taking pain killers.
In my opinion you need to be seen by your Orthopedist again or neurologist can be considered for a clinical examination and undergo MRI of Lumbosacral spine,Nerve conduction velocity test with EMG to rule out underlying possible causes like Herniated disc,Lumbar radiculopathy,Bursitis,Fibromyalgia,Autoimmune arthritis.
Physical therapy can be effective in your case.
For severe pain,steroid injection,pain patches can be advised.
I suggest you to make an appointment with doctor and advocate yourself regarding your pain.
I hope this helps.

thanks I will just have to be more forceful I have been trying to get someone to listen to me for years, is there a way you could recommend to get the attention of a doctor so they will finally do something about this.
Thanks for the follow-up.
Well first investigations like MRI of Lumbosacral spine should be done to determine the underlying possible cause of pain in your case.
And then treatment should be given.
So you should consult your family doctor first and ask for referral to Orthopedist or Neurologist.
Good luck dear.
