Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually stabbing pain in this region can be due to a number of conditions. the first one is that she could have a muscle spasm which can occur in teenagers who are active. Usually this occur due to dehydration or an electrolyte imbalance. if this is the case then simply using an increased amount of plain water along with electrolyte rich fluids like gatorade and pedialyte would be useful. if that does not help then using OTC anti inflammatory medications like ibuprofen at a dose of 400-600 mg thrice daily would be helpful. If that does not hel[p then start applying OTC capsiacin gel on the area and get muscle relaxants like flexeril or tinazidine.

Another cause of pain in this area can be either bursitis or tendonitis. Bursitis is inflammation of small fluid containing sacs inside the hip joint which can again be inflammed in teenagers who are active and this would be treated in much teh same manner as above. Severe cases may require steroid injections into the area. Similarly tendonitis can also cause this sort of pain and it is due to inflammation of the tendons of the area. Again same treatment is started for that as well.

I would suggest that you start the above modalities and see if that helps within the next 48 hours and if it does not contact your doctor.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
