Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm a Consultant Rheumatologist and I am reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Does the pain appeared suddenly ?
What you were doing when pain started ?
Any backache ?
Are hip joint movement painful as well ?
Thanks for the information
This can be a pain originating from the hip joint or the surrounding ligaments
You should take an anti inflammatory drug like Motrin to help with the pain
If you continue to have pain and you can not put weight on the leg you will need to have an examination to establish the exact cause '
This might require an X-ray and an MRI to look into details of the problem
Please do let me know if you have any more question
Within 1-2 hours of Motrin or even earlier than this
Yes a ligament tear can be a possibility in this situation and you do need evaluation for that
