It feels like muscle soreness but I’ve done nothing to hurt it or stress it in an unusual way before it started. It’s immediately above the left hip and hurts when I first stand but after a few steps I’m usually good. I exercise a minimum of 4 days a week and it’s the same exercises I’ve been doing since 2017

Your symptoms can be due to;

Hip Osteoarthritis or hip strain.

Lumbar spondylosis

Or Both.

Ideally, an MRI should be done to ascertain the cause.

This will tell, what are the tissues involved (which can be):

1) Muscles

2) Joint

3) Ligament

4) Tendon

5) Bursa

6) cartilage

7) Or any combination.

The mainstay of the treatment though is not very different and is;

a) Physical therapy

b) Deep electrotherapy

c) Acupuncture

d) Local analgesic cream

e) Pool therapy/hydrotherapy.

f) Analgesics

g) Lidocaine cream

h) Capsaicin cream.

i) Ice compresses

You may consult;

1) Orthopedics

2) MD in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I received an email saying you needed more details. I do not see a request for details, just a long-winded “go to the doctor” which is a complete waste of my money to come here and be told that.

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.
