Forum Name: Spinal problems and back pain
Question: sharp hip pain
|dancer - Fri May 20, 2005 8:47 am||
I was diagnosed with a spondylolisthesis, and bilateral stress fractures at the L5/S1 level about 3 years ago, at age 20. After coping the last 4 years with chronic lower back pain, it has pretty much subsided due to my increased attention to posture, and correctly lifting heavy items, attending yoga and pilates classes, and increased general awareness about my injury. I have now been running for a year, and have begun to develop a sharp pain in my hips. This pain started in the flexors and has now moved to the side, under the hip socket, if that makes sense. I have a suspicion that this is related to my back injury, but haven't been able to find any information about it.

In my opinion I would be inclined to consider your symptoms as being related to your back injury/spondylolisthesis. I would suggest an physicians evaluation to include diagnostic studies such as xrays, MRI to rule out any new fractures or nerve compression.
