My boyfriend is experiencing lower left back pain close to hip noticably swollen to touch and to eye. No other symptom.

Xray: I would maybe suggest he go be seen by his/a doctor and have an X-ray of the hip and rule out a septic joint. You don't mention him having a fever which would make me think that even more, but could be early in the game. Still with pain and obviously swollen back/hip I think exam and X-ray are warranted at this point. Best wishes to you both. ...Read more

Sorry: Sorry about your condition! You problem presents several diagnostic possibilities and, understandably, diagnosis will be impossible via this forum. You don't mention a few important details that will ultimately help your doctor in diagnosing your problem: 1. How long have you had the pain? 2. Is this episode unique? Is this similar to when you've had "blood clots" in the past? 3. Have you always noticed a leg length discrepancy or is this new? 4. Have you experienced any new trauma or are you aware of anything medically new elsewhere in your history (i.e. Recent congestive heart problems, new medications, and so forth). I'd suggest you be seen soon by a primary care doctor to get this diagnosed. Good luck! ...Read more
