Friday May 26, 2017 - Hip pain

Over the last two days, I have had hip pain in both hips. I have not had pain like this before. I can not tell exactly where the pain is, its just my whole hip area has a constant dull pain. It's not the fat area or a muscle cramp. It could be a ligament or an area around the bones. It feels most like my hips being out of place.

Everything I read states that HRT can only add fat to your hips and butt area to give it a more feminine look. Once your bones are set, HRT can not change them and that makes sense.

But I have had this pain for two days, which makes it hard to walk and sleep. During the day, if I sit for a long period of time, when I get up to walk, the pain is there.

At night, it is hard for me to lay down and I feel uncomfortable. It feels like my hips are not in alignment.  Its as though they are slightly twisted and out of alignment.

I do not know what it is. If it persists, I will go to my Doctor.


  1. I would give strong consideration to seeing a chiropractor. It has worked wonders for me. I doctor can give you meds to mask or hide the pain or, in appropriate, deal with inflamation. A chiropractor can work on alignment and adjustment issues.
    I hope you feel better.

  2. As Pat suggested, find a good chiropractor. I might help relieve the pain but also consider talking to your primary care doctor. You might have a pinched nerve that is causing the pain.

  3. I have heard from others and read, while your hips won't widen, they do rotate a little due to the loosening of some tendons and the tightening of others. Basically it causes your upper body to tilt forward some and the butt to move backward also causing a little more curve to the lower spine. This could very well be what you are feeling.
