Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Dear Customer: Greetings, this is Dr. Basu, experienced Medical Specialist and former attending physician of Harvard Medical School. I am board-certified with many years of experience. I did review your inquiry and I am hoping to give you at least some high-quality guidance here.
Please give me some time to review your concerns. Please be patient with me as I am on and off the computer so responses can be delayed at times, but I will be glad to help.
Where is the pain located?
Does the pain come down from lower back?
Probably muscle pain or hip joint arthritis related pain since clicking noise.
You can try over the counter Ibuprofen ( ANeurofen) 2 tablets with food every 8 hours for pain control.
Also Warm compress and over the counter Salonpas ointment ( topical lidocaine and menthol) 3 times daily application over the painful area will help.
Please consider physical therapy as that will help to strengthen the muscles and also traction to release pressure on the nerves.
