Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having hip pain that was off and on for about 3 weeks can be due to various causes.

The most probable causes of hip pain are:
-Hip arthritis
-Trochanteric bursitis
-Tendonitis
-Infection
-Muscle or tendon strain

The most probable cause seems to be hip arthritis or trochanteric bursitis.Arthritis is among the most frequent causes of hip pain.A bursa is a tiny fluid-filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body.These bursa sacs can become irritated from injury, excessive pressure, and overuse. Inflammation of a bursa is called bursitis.

You need following tests:

-X-ray of hip joint

-Clinical examination

Please do not worry. There is nothing serious or dangerous about this and it is treatable with medications.

As you have already have an ice pack on that hip and have taken pain killers and ibuprofen, I advise you to to please make an appointment with your ortho doctor to have the tests & examination done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you

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.
