Hips hurt when I sit ?

Hips hurt when I sit ?

Not the hip joint: Usually it does not hurt to sit with hip arthritis. It may hurt to get up. Depending where it hurts it could be trochanteric bursitis if it hurts on the side of the pelvis; ischial bursitis or piriformis syndrome if it hurts on the bottom, coccyxgodynia if he pain is coming from the tailbone - called the coccyx. Sometimes for comfort you can cushion you gluteal region with a pillow. ...Read more

I have 34 inch hips, 24 is that healthy?

I have 34 inch hips, 24 is that healthy?

Depends on height: It depends on height, weight, and how much is fat and how much is muscle mass. If you are 4 foot 5, that is not healthy. If you are 6 feet 2, and your bust is the same, you might be pin-up material (and I'd be envious). Tell us more details. ...Read more

My wife is expecting our first baby in Nov, her hip getting more and more hurt recently. So how to reduce that hurt?

My wife is expecting our first baby in Nov, her hip getting more and more hurt recently. So how to reduce that hurt?

Being sensitive: Being well past her first trimester, Tylenol won't hurt. And not over-doing it too. That's where you come in: be sensitive to her condition and needs and help out when the pain gets a bit too much. A little massge wouldn't hurt either. And a hot bath and gentle stretching. Her ligaments are a bit looser than usual and she's prone to more aches and pains. ...Read more

At night I wake up to my hips hurting what causes this?

At night I wake up to my hips hurting what causes this?

See your doctor.: Hip ache at night time could be many things. First, make sure you're not always laying on the same side and compressing a nerve. Are you stiff or your shoulders hurt too? Then consider things like polymyalgia rheumatica. Sometimes, night pain in bones can mean something more serious like malignancy (especially if only on one side). Bottom line, if not going away, see your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
