What's causing severe pain in upper thigh, just left of hip bone? Referred pain into glute when I press into it and down into quad.

Bursa inflammation: I assume the pain you have is in your left upper thigh. You should see a doctor for a precise evaluation. Based on your description, a possible diagnosis is trochanteric bursitis which is an inflammation of the bursa lying over the upper part of your thigh bone. Unless contraindicated for you, Motrin may help. If not see a pain physician who can perform a very simple injection.

I'm experiencing severe pain in my left hip, but only at night and only when I'm laying on the opposite side. What could this be caused by?

Back origin possible: If your pain were originating in the hip joint or bursa, it should be aggravated by walking. I suspect your pain may be originating in the lower part of your spine, but have to admit that this would usually be aggravated by the upright position as well.

What could cause a painful, large bump on left hip (waist)?

Painful bumps: A new painful bump in the tissue could be an abscess or boil (furuncle) if it is hot to the touch, or you have a fever you should get checked. However, you don't say how long you have had it, how big it is, the color, whether you injured yourself (ran into something) etc. So it is hard to give any decent information. Check with your doc or try Healthtap Prime & you can talk to a doc, & add pic.

I'm a healthy male in my 40's. I have been experiencing pain in my left hip after masturbation. The pain gets so severe that I've stopped. Cause?

I'm a healthy male in my 40's. I have been experiencing pain in my left hip after masturbation. The pain gets so severe that I've stopped. Cause?

Unconnected: Unless you masturbate in an awkward position I do not see any connection in between masturbation and hip pain. Is it inner or outer hip? How about running or biking? Any hip pain?

Soft tissues: 32y fem has "severe low back/hip pain alternating from side to side for six months" + sciatica. Largest joints in axial spine are sacroiliac joints, SIJ, & responsible for up to 30% of chronic low back pain per med lit.
