I have pain in the hip area. I also have pain walking, like someone is stabbing the groin area on one side. When I lie on that side, it creates pain. It doesn't help to put a pillow between my thighs while sleeping. It doesn't hurt standing, just sitting and lying down or walking. I had a MRI on my hip and there was no arthritis. There was a little wear at the bottom of the pelvis bone. I like to bike ride but am having a hard time walking on the treadmill. My hip does click sometimes..

I have been in chronic/constant pain for over 18 years. I have had no definite diagnosis yet. I am 39 years old and it has gotten worse over the past several months. The pain is dull, aching, and throbbing all around my right hip. It affects my lower back and right leg also. Hydrocodone doesn't help much, and doctors won’t even give me that because they need "proof" that I have a problem..
