Joint pain: Intermittent transient joint pain in region of one hip suggests a major joint subluxation. Scroiliac joint instability can commonly cause, and less commonly occurs via femoral head instability within acetabulum. Multiple pregnancies or joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs) can underlie the symptoms. Study brighton criteria known within british jhs community of doctors. Is there superflexibility?

Abd pain: Hernia is one of the considerations. Muscle spasm is another. Hip problem is less likely, but needs to be considered.
