Since one month, I have been facing joint pain in my right leg and hip. I consulted a doctor at my native and he said that bone is worn-out at the joint. Again, when I consulted a doctor in my working place, he said that the cause of my pain is arthritis. The pain is not much. I am a 47 year old male. I am currently on Ultracet. Also, my doctor said that he can find out the exact problem only after an MRI. What I suppose to do now? Please suggest me.

Thank you doctor,
I am having pain in the hip joint. Yes, I can sit cross legs without any problem. But, I feel little pain when I walk or run. I do not have fever or other issues. There is no pain in other joints. The pain will be more when I stand for a long time and will subside with rest. I do not have any medical issues such as BP or sugar. I am using Ultracet only for the past five days and I am not on any other medication.
