Examination needed: Multiple causes are possible. You could be complaining of a painful snapping hip (psoas tendon or iliotibial band are common culprits). Internal joint damage is also possible: tears of the labrum or joint cartilage can cause intermittent painful catching. A thorough examination by your pcp or orthopaedic surgeon will likely lead to e answer for your hip.
