Hip pain: vague to say hip. Is pain in the butt area, the groin, or the outside of the hip? There are different sources for pain in each of these. If the outside of the hip area, you have trochanteric bursitis whichcan be treated with cold packs and medication but may require steroid injections and physical therapy. If you're referring to groin pain then you may have a labral tear which an MRI to diagnose. ...Read more

Likely muscle strain: A muscle strain is a tearing of a muscle. The will hurt when it is used or stretched. U probably "strained" one of your hip flexor muscles. It take 1-6 weeks to heal and become hip free. But if the pain prevents you form putting weight on the leg or persists see a doctor , there is a possibility that this could be something else like a stress fracture or a hernia. ...Read more

I hurt my hip 3 weeks ago while running. Can't lift the leg or cross my legs. Do I have a hip labral tear?

I hurt my hip 3 weeks ago while running. Can't lift the leg or cross my legs. Do I have a hip labral tear?

Many possibilities: The fact that you can't lift your leg suggest hip flexor strain/tear (a high degree strain). Without a fall it would be unlikely to have a sudden label tear, though they can develop over time. Best to get a diagnosis from a sports med doc right away. All of those diagnoses benefit from physical therapy +\- a brief course of anti- inflammatories. ...Read more

Osteoporosis and running will require a fine balance. You are at increased risk of stress fx or pathologic fx. ...Read more
