Sorry about your hip pain Sean.scott787,
I would explore if there are underlying nerve issues or another cause besides the muscles.
When a person has severe chronic pain, they tend to brace against the pain. Sometimes this is done even if one is not aware of it.
That can cause muscle pain and the muscles to get tense more due to the bracing.
It can be a viscous cycle of relentless pain, as you well know.
Since Pt is not of any help, a pain specialist(sometimes at larger hospitals) may have some ways to give you some relief so you can regain some function.
If it is Lyme and co causing the pain, then I would consult with my llmd about targeting that symptom more. Be it with herbals, other medications etc.
Please take care and I hope you get some relief and improvement soon.
