I guess pain: "hip/pelvis stress fracture" a curious medical diagnosis & one this doctor has never heard for symptoms in these structurally firm bone regions. Fractures (cracks) in these bones by & large occur from significant trauma & not from repetative biomechanical "stress"; unless person has severely advanced demineralization or wasting of bone mass & integrity from advanced age and/or a specific disease.
