In brief: Usually not

Sounds more like degenerative arthritis in the hips or sacrum or si joints.
Osteopenia doesn't generally cause pain. It makes fractures more likely and they hurt.

In brief: Not usually but oste

Oporosis can b painful, mainly in the back.
If u stress ur bones significantly u can have pain in the hips, knees, ankles, with osteopenia if u r not used 2 the stress. If u have it the best way 2 strengthen ur bones is 2 do weight bearing exercises. Start with a walking program, slowly increase the distance ; speed ;then add hills. This is easy 2 do, cheap ; can b done in ur neighborhood easily.
