I don't know what's wrong with it, but it's been at least a couple of months, and my right hip isn't healing from whatever initially triggered it. I have no clue what that was! It is getting worse, and last night woke me up numerous times. My prescription pain meds don't do a thing for it, which is very weird. If it was muscular or arthritic pain, those meds should do the trick, but they don't stop it one tiny bit. I'm going to give it one more month (or until it stops me from walking, whichever comes sooner) before going to the doctor to see what on earth is up with it. It's on the outside, near the joint, yet the pain increases if I turn my leg in, but not out so that is also very weird!
