I've dealt with that type of extreme pain for years on both hips/ legs, and now I'm much better. Have written numerous posts on it in the past, but it might look to time consuming to some people.
I think you have to reach a point where its obvious that no one can help you before one does what I did, self learn / treat with occasional help from certain pt types. Still reaching for that last 10 percent, but get stronger every few weeks.
There are many factors in hip pain, I learned a little here and there from "body pt / chiro professionals", you-tube, and trying / proving things on myself.
One confusing areas though is determining if the pain is from : joints, tendons, muscle or nerves. Nerves is the tough one, takes time and I recently asked what supplements help heal them. That said, some nerve issues are mechanical in nature, meaning its a muscle pinching on the nerve, or stuck to it, which can be physically corrected to some extent.
Basically, I controlled /managed / improved it with lyme, then after ABX it was easier to make improvements but would not make great progress all on its own unless I kept doing more self PT.
I started loosening then strengthening my whole body at the core and went outward. The fitness roller which girlie asked about
is a good first step, but wont fix a hip by itself.
I am more than happy to explain my whole "protocol" and reasoning behind it to anyone that is seriously interested, I understand it might not be for everyone, because it sounds like a lot of work. It is a lot of trial and error too, but free once you understand the principles. PT is also trial and error, and you pay even if they cant fix it.
