Maybe you need x-ray: Pain is the body's signal that something is wrong, and should be checked out. Symptoms of the hip, often need to have an x-ray to evaluate the hip or joint. And maybe blood tests to check for infection or inflammation. You are of an age when some diseases are more likely to show up, then somebody in their 20's. An exam, and the tests above may well be needed. See your doctor soon.
