Hip pain: Hip pain that alternates sides suggests inflammation of the sacroiliac joints. Perhaps an exercise, housework, or yard work is causing irritation of the joints. Ice at night and anti-inflammatory medications may relieve the pain. If the pain persists then see a neurosurgeon or spine surgeon for evaluation.
