This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having hip pain.

it sounds like nothing over the counter is helping you at this point.

this is when you need to see a doctor like an orthopedic doctor or go to the ER and get a hip xray and physical examination

you could be having some bad hip arthritis or bursitis or tendonitis there.

you might benefit from a hip steroid injection to help decrease inflammation and pain there.

a hip MRI scan can give more information.

do you have a doctor you can see or an ER or hospital close by you?
