Mysticdoc :

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

This pain can be from two different possibilities.

Mysticdoc :

The first one is hip joint arthritis.

Mysticdoc :

This can cause pain on climbing stairs.

Mysticdoc :

Another possibility is the pinched nerve like sciatica at the lower back or at the hip joint causing pain while climbing stairs.

Mysticdoc :

Xrays of the hip joint should be considered.

Mysticdoc :

Pinched nerve can be diagnosed clinically.

Mysticdoc :

Physical therapy will be helpful with either problem.

Mysticdoc :

Medication wise, tylenol or ibuprofen should provide relief.

Mysticdoc :

However, you need to discuss with your doctor also for further evaluation and referral to physical therapy.
