What is important to understand is not everyone's symptoms manifest in the exact symptoms described. A patient may experience one or more of the exact symptoms to also include some that are unique to them only.
Additionally, you could have a combination of conditions, such as sciatica, meralgia paresthetica or arthritis for example.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of hip arthritis. A few small European studies suggest that injections with hyaluronic acid may benefit people with osteoarthritis of the hip. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is similar to the lubricating material produced naturally in healthy joints.
In view of the fact the x-ray was not beneficial, I would suggest a MRI. What is important to remember is that if your pain is caused by nerve compression or impingement, both the x-rays and MRI would show negative.
Have you considered consulting with a chiropractor? Often this type of specialist achieves the best results in regard to alleviating pain caused by a pinched or compressed nerve. Treament modalities such as deep tissue massage, gentle stretching, range of motion and strengtening exercises are quite successful in relieving symptoms.
A pinched nerve occurs when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues - such as bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure (compression) disrupts the nerve's function, causing pain, tingling, burning, numbness or weakness in the affected area.
A pinched nerve can occur anywhere in your body. For example, a herniated disk in your lower spine may put pressure on a nerve root, causing pain that radiates down the back of your leg (sciatica).
