Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been suffering from hip pain for the past six months. The pain gets worse during the night. I have consulted many doctors but nothing helped.

Kindly help.

Answered by Dr. Utpal Sheth


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query. I understand your concern. The hip is a large area, but from my experience, I would presume it is on the outer aspect of your hip. Are you in the habit of sitting with your leg crossed or your ankle on the opposite ankle or ankle on the opposite knee or under the opposite hip? Or if the chair or surface where you are sitting is low for your height? These sitting habits can be the cause of your pain. What is the intensity of your pain on a scale of 0 to 10 when sitting, standing, walking, stair clearance, and sleeping. Do you have any difficulty walking? I hope this has helped you.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
