Somethimes pain is sharp and other times radiates to hip area. But pain is mostly in front of the hip area. No history of any hip problems or injuries. 55 years old male

Thank you for the information,

The pain can be due to a few reasons.

It can be due to muscle strain, inflammation of joint or arthritis.

Inflammation of a bursa is also possible but it becomes usually tender.

Fracture or such cause should not be there as you did not have any trauma.

Pinched nerve is another possibility .

As the symptoms are persisting after taking pain medicine, you should consult doctor for an examination and investigations.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.
