I advise you to seek neurological consultation.
This pain could be due to:
Pathologic diseases affecting hip joint and cause pain may range from a muscle or tendon strain to, osteoarthritis, to more serious conditions like femoral neck stress fracture.
MRI is of choice in diagnosis.
In MRI negative individuals, inflammation of the sacroiliac joint is suspected and special tests and maneuvers can help in the diagnosis.
- Herniated disk, in which the inter-vertebral disc press on the nerves & other spinal disorders should be excluded.
MRI is of choice.
Direct neurological examination is very important.
Keep us updated.
