OK Barbara. You need those to better define what's going on here. Most likely this is hip bursitis that would benefit from a cortisone injection and physical therapy but at your age, even with no trauma involved, you may actually have a hairline hip fracture. You need to tell your doctor this isn't getting any better and hopefully he'll get the studies ordered
