I am a 22-year-old female. My hip and leg have been in pain for about the last three months. The pain radiates from my hip to my thigh and is worse at night time when I lie on this side. It feels like I am all bruised around that area, but there is no bruise there. When I put pressure on it or lie on it, then it gets sore. It is my left leg. I sit with my left leg on top of my right leg most of the time and unsure if this has something to do with it. The pain is not unbearable, but it is an annoyance for me. When I sit for a period or lie, I get stiff and sore. I have a desk job; therefore, I do not move about very much during the day. I want some relief from the pain and know how to help it.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
In my opinion, you have a kind of inflammation of the fluid-filled sac on the outer aspect of the hip, which on lying gets compressed and giving you that pain. And I am not sure if you had earlier episodes of back pain or any other back-related issue. As if there is pain radiating, it could also be due to nerve impingement. But as per your description, it is mostly due to the hip bursa. Fluid-filled sac.
Kindly do get back to me if you need any further clarification regarding additional help.
