Hello from JustAnswer.
There are a few home interventions that can be tried. It may help to use an anti-inflammatory medicine, which can help ease welling associated with inflammation, and there are a couple that are available over the counter - ibuprofen and naproxen. It also may help to apply local care of ice and moist heat. Exercises to improve strength and range of motion may also be helpful, and many people find that exercises in a pool are better tolerated because there buoyancy of the water relieves the weight bearing across the hip joint.
If these home interventions are not helpful, then there may be other options that your doctor can consider, so it would be appropriate to be seen at that point.
