Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Bursitis of hip should cause pain around the hip joint.
But you are experiencing more pain in the lower leg.
That is not expected.
This can be caused by sciatica or pinched nerve at the hip joint or your lower back.
The pain usually radiates to the lower leg in case of nerve related problem.
Another possibility can be blood clot in your lower leg veins.
That can cause severe pain in lower leg.
Given these possibilities, you should consider going to the local hospital today clinical evaluation.
If no blood clot, then you will need stronger pain medication and also steroid injection in the hip joint.
