strained/inflamed muscle/ tendon/ ligament right where it joins the top left side of the pelvis (right above the butt). Nothing to do with the spine, so searches for back problems send me down a spiny dead end.

I have mild pain in my right hip, more with heavier usage such as longer walks, squats, stairs--especially while carrying heavier loads. It gets worse with more exercise :-(

What was reported on my hip imaging:

FINDINGS: There is no fracture, malalignment, or focal osseous destruction.

There is mild right and left hip joint space narrowing with prominent osteophyte formation [ED--osteophyte=bony outgrowth associated with degeneration of cartilage at joints].

Multifocal enthesopathy noted throughout the pelvis.[ED--enthesopathy=disorder involving attachment of a tendon or ligament to a bone. If the condition is inflammatory, it can more precisely be called enthesitis.]

Mild degenerative changes are present at the sacroiliac joints. No focal soft tissue abnormality.


Does any of this seem to apply? I suggest getting imaging.
