I tell ya, it feels like I'm breaking down little by little.  Lately I've been having pain in my right hip that doesn't seem to be related to anything (movement/sitting/standing...)  Anybody else and what have you done for it? 
Take care, Softy

Hi softy, I'm not sure but this may be caused by your cramping. I know when I have cramping it not only affects my front but also affects my back as well. I also have arthritis all in my spine, mostly cervical, thoracic, and sacrum and the pain seems to be so much worse when my IBS is acting up. The pain will spread across to my hips too and when my IBS and monthly cycle are hitting me at the same time, I feel absolutely horrible. You may want to get it checked out by a doctor or chiropractor and make sure that you are not having some other problems that may be the root cause. Hugs to you!!

Hey Softy girl!  Okay, here comes my barrage of questions regarding this mysterious hip pain...when did it start?  Did it come on suddenly or gradually?  Any trauma recently to that hip?  Do you notice it more when you walk, run, stretch, sit, sleep?  Is it constant or does it only occur occasionally?  Can you describe the pain a bit more (burny, achey, sharp, dull, etc.)? 

I too have developed some mysterious hip and knee pain that is boggling my mind, especially the hip pain.  Have had it for three months now and have no idea what brought it on.  Try to answer some of those questions and maybe we can help you pinpoint it a bit more.  Have you asked your doc about it?  I'm sure you have had it up to HERE with docs.  I hear ya girl!

Wow, I've been having hip pain too the past couple of months. My IBS has clearned up for the time being, so I don't think mine's related to that. I'm on Dep Provera, so I don't have periods or monthly hormonal fluctuations. I finally changed chairs at work because the one I was sitting in had a horrible seat that makes me lean forward. I knew it was the chair because my butt was hurting. But I don't know that it explains my hip joint pain which comes on suddenly and seemingly for no particular reason. And I've been sitting in that chair since July and it's only been last week that it suddenly made me hurt a lot. I wear the same shoes almost every day, and that doesn't seem to affect it. I've tried being vigilent about not crossing my legs because that's not supposed to be good for your hips anyways, but it's hard to remember to do unless I'm hurting.

Do you guys that have the pain take calcium? I've been wondering if there might be a link there. Fortunately I've been regular enough lately--actually a bit constipated--that I'm going to go off the calcium. Maybe we'll see if I quit hurting after I've been off it a few weeks. Maybe extra calcium causes bone sensitivity? Seems kind of weird since I once cured my sensitive teeth by letting Equalactin dissolve in my mouth (Equalactin being a type of calcium--for IBS, actually). We'll see.

Hey again Sarita girl! Hip pain started about 3-4 months ago. Can on gradually out of the blue. No trauma, pain in right hip only. Hurts daily but not constant. Pain is mostly on outside of hip area and I would describe it as achy. Seems to hurt worse with inactivity. Walk like I'm 90 when I get out of bed some mornings.

Was looking up arthritis and bursitis and other itises on the net and can't figure it out. Went to Dr. last week but had too many other problems I've been avoiding to deal with and didn't get to the hip as my 2 minutes ran out.

Have you asked your doc about yours?

Keriamon - I don't take calcium and barely eat/drink dairy products. I suffer from alternating D/C and calcium bungs me up. I'm almost 39 though so I guess I should start...lol
Take care, Softy

Well I'm only 26, so I know mine's not arthritis! Lol.

There are calcium supplements that don't constipate. You just have to get the ones with more magnesium. My mother, grandmother and a lady I used to work with all take the chewable kind. They're kind of like candy--chocolate flavor. I think they chew about like a Tootsie Roll, but I wouldn't attest to them tasting like one. Though Mama says they're pretty good.

My doc told me I have bursitis today and ordered an x-ray; if negative, the radiologist will give me a fluoroscopy-guided cortisone injection to decrease the inflammation.  Like your pain, mine just appeared out of the blue on the outside of my hip and is very tender to the touch, but I can walk okay; running aggravates it.  You might have some bursitis going on; I'll let you know how the cortisone injection goes.  I had one in my elbow at one point for a nasty case of tendonitis and the tendonitis resolved within about a month afterwards, even though the injection itself totally sucked!

Wow. Did you have a prior knee injury? I've heard injured joints and broken bones are much more supsceptible to arthritis later.

Osteoarthritis is a wear and tear kind of thing although injuries and broken bones don't have to be the culprit. My osteoarthritis came on early in my life (mid-twenties) as a result of gymnastics.
