Pain in hip
I have experienced pain in my left hip for more than a week now. If I lie on my left side or if I sit in a crunced position for a while, I experience pain when I have to stand up and walk.

Dear Elaine
You provide very little information, but this may be osteo-arthritis. Something we get as we grow older and the wear and tear effects start to show. The pain usually gets better after you have moved around for a while. If the pain persists and become unbearable you should please consult your GP.
The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical examination, diagnosis and formal advice.
