Hi, How is your mother? If there is no history of trauma to this area, hip pain may be due to arthritis, trochanteric bursitis, tendonitis, osteonecrosis, lumbar Pain suchherniated discs and sciatica, snapping hip syndrome, muscle strains and hip fracture. It would be best to have this evaluated by your doctor. Treatment of hip pain must be directed at the specific cause of the problem. A complete medical history and physical examination are needed to reach a diagnosis. Imaging studies such as x-ray or MRI may be done to rule out musculoskeletal conditions. The first treatment for most conditions that cause hip pain is to rest the joint, and allow the acute inflammation to subside. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications may also help with the pain. Take care and regards.

My upper thigh seems to lock up on me and I have trouble walking because of the stiffness. I have a bad back and my chiropractor feels that the locking up could be from my back. Another doctor diagnosed me as having a focal distonia. It seems to me that the less I use my leg the better it is, which really interferes with my exercising. I don't have any leg pain but sometimes I get pain in my heel and ankle or my left knee. I was treated with botox injections in my left thigh but it didn't seem to help. I don't know what to do to prevent this but it has really interfered with my quality of life. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi, How are you? Are there other symptoms present? What tests were done? If the botox injection did not help, check with your doctor for proper management. This could be due to either musculoskeletal (joint disorders, muscle inflammation, etc) or neurolgoical( nerve comrpession) causes. You may need to be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation. Imaging modalities, blood tests and even EMG may help determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.

I keep getting a severe pain in my right hip/ pelvic joint. like it locks up and I cant walk, move or stand on it using any pressure. I can sit Indian style okay but once I move its a sharp pain. I can lift my leg but then once I move it down I get the same pain. What can cause this? Arthritis?

I have had two pregnancies and am 30 years old. both pregnancys were C-section one emergency and one planned if that helps.

I am having issue with my right side of the hip, it feels like my hip is locking up and even collapsing. I have been working out regularly for the last 6-8 weeks and I don't recall any injury from weight lifting or cardio exercise. I have not consulted my doctor yet. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.
