Doctor insights on:
Iliac Crest Hip Pain
Sartorius/TFL/Glute: Seen in athletes as well. Evalualte the muscles that originate off the asis as well as the glute max and med off the iliac crest and wing. Have to look at back and hip xr too and look at the wing even with possible judet views. Is the patient older? Wearing a belt (officer)? Athletic? Muscular imbalance?
Currently in tx/lower back and hip pain (mostly on iliac crest) only flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) and Ultram help-xr neg?
Limit treatment.: If that effective rx is effective, complete a 3-4 week course of treatment. However, if the problem does not resolve, have it further worked up beyond the xrays. You do not want to stay on ultram for prolonged period. For most problems, I give it 3-4 weeks to get better or resolve, before more intense workup.See 1 more doctor answer

Oncology: Would suggest that you inform your treating oncologist. Persistent bone pain should always be further investigated in a patient with your history.

Friction: Illiotibial band runs from illiac crest to the lateral aspect of the knee. Its friction can lead to similar symptoms you are describing & it is called illiotibial band friction syndrome.See 1 more doctor answer
Intense pain in right hip just under iliac crest, present for probably a year, runner, wakes me up at night if lay on it, hurts after sitting too long?
Muscle: There are numerous muscles in that area and it sounds like they are inflamed or you have bursitis. Usually due to improper footwear in runners
I have daily pain and discomfort in my iliac crest bones. I also have osteoartharitis in both hips is it connected?
Probably: Hip arthritis may present with pain in this area. The bigger question is why would a 28 you old have oa of the hips. Is it related to dysplasia?
I had an l5-s1 fusion rev/hardware removal 1 year ago. Therapy done. Why do I still have aching pain in my lt/side hip/iliac crest (tender to touch)?
Possibilities:: While I rarely take iliac crest bone graft because it usually isn't necessary, when I do, my patients never complain of pain from the graft site. It definitely could be si joint pain, you should have your si joint evaluated with the 5 provocative tests for si instability. If at least 3 are positive, then an si joint injection, radioablation, or minimally invasive fusion may alleviate your pain.See 2 more doctor answers

Back exam: Pain above the iliac crest is not likely to be coming from the hip. It is more likely to be radiating from the lumbar spine. A low back evaluation is indicated.
Bursitis v.arthritis: Hip pain after lying down could be a inflammatory problem with the bursa called bursitis. If the pain is worse with longer periods of lying down, it could be stiffness you are experiencing from an arthritic hip. First step is to see a doctor such as a physiatrist who will examine you and may require an x-ray. We may also recommend a trial of an anti-inflammatory.
Hip Pain: Sitting presses the ball of the hip joint forcibly into the socket. In people with arthritis, this is not uncommon. Getting up from sitting is equally or more painful due to muscle contraction necessary to straighten up the hips to allow upright standing. Younger patients may have pain if there is a cartilage tear (similar to meniscus in knee). Try otc meds, but if persistent, may need MRI & ortho.
The injury: You could of strained a muscle, or ligament. You could of fractured bone, you could of bruised bone or soft tissue. You could of caused nerve irritation. After the fall, ice and an antiinflammatory are a good idea, if after 3 days there is still pain and discomfort a trip to the orthopedist is a good idea.See 1 more doctor answer
