Hi. Hip pain is pain in or around your hip joint. You may feel the pain directly over the hip or in the middle of your thigh. You may feel pain in your groin too. Hip pain is caused by arthritis, trochanteric bursitis, tendinitis, strain, low back pain and infection. Treatment includes drugs and surgery. You may me prescribed with anti-inflammatory meds. You can take a higher dose of OTC meds. If a person suffers from aseptic necrosis, surgical repair, or hip replacement may be required. If you have a hip fracture or severe arthritis, hip replacement is necessary. Artificial hips last 10 to 15 years. Recovery time is at least 6 weeks.
