Hip pain: hello ~ are you an athlete? If so its probably ligamentous strain. Tri-athlete? Could be early OA. If not, see a MD if it persists. Dont forget extra Ca and Vit D. thanks

Hip pain: That type of stabbing pain is consistent with an irritable or irritated nerve in that area. It is not a classic symptom of hip arthritis or bursitis which commonly affect the hip joint. My sense is that this symptom will resolve on its own, but if it persists or worsens, consult an orthopedic specialist.
