Source of pain: Pain in hip and/or upper or lower leg doesn't have to originate from joint but may be coming from lower back. Plain x rays may not show source and an MRI of the lower back may be necessary to rule out a disc protrusion as a source of the unrelenting pain. Then, other consultants may need to get involved in potential treatment.

Hip pain : Make sure imaging is done for hip and knee, because there's something called referred pain where the pain in the knee can be manifested in the hip and the pain in the hip can be manifested in the knee. If negative and physical therapy attempted you might need mris.
