Hip Pain

Just to review: you've indicated that you are at least 55 years old, have no other joint pain besides that in one or both hips and that the hip pain began suddenly.

Some people notice a painful area, like a bad bruise, over the outside of the hip. The next question --the last one!-- asks about that.

Can you reproduce the pain by pressing on one spot over the outside of the hip?

Yes, I can bring on the pain by pressing.

No, I cannot reproduce the pain by pressing.
