Many possibilities: Consider how supportive your mattress is for your body. Examine what if anything restricts your movement in bed or any other aspects of your sleep environment that may cause you hip discomfort. Change one thing at a time to see which one may be the cause. Being overweight can also contribute to hip pain.

See an Orthopaedist: Their are different potential causes of your hip pain. Pain that occurs when you are sleeping can be a simple problem such as bursitis of the hip. An orthopaedic evaluation with x-rays is the best place to start to help identify the source of the problem and recommend treatment to help.
