Pain In The Hip Area, Accompanied By Stiffness And Difficulty Walking?
Hello, I often have hip pain, the pain has been a long time, the pain has recurred, if I have a stiff body ache it is difficult to wake up, if the walking hurts. What specialist should I do for the examination?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain that is felt especially in the hip area, accompanied by body stiffness and difficulty walking in men can be caused by the following conditions:
Disorders of the muscles (muscle pain), for example related to a history of injury, extreme and repetitive movements, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals. Kidney disorders, such as stones, infection or other inflammation Disorders of nerves and spine, for example due to herniated bone disks back, tumor, or infection that pinches the nerves around the spinal cord Disorders of the digestive organs, for example due to colitis, hernias Disorders of the bladder, for example due to stones, inflammation, cancer disorders of the joints, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint dislocations Disorders of the reproductive organs, for example due to varicocele, epididymitis, psychosomatic disorders, etc. Do you have any other complaints besides pain? Do you also have fever, vomiting, bowel disorders, urinary problems, tingling, numbness, or other complaints? Have you had any injuries around the painful hip?
If you have experienced an injury around the painful hip, or you also experience other complaints as mentioned above, we recommend that you do not let your pain continue without treatment. Go directly to your doctor to check for possible causes. Chances are, your doctor will first give you some initial treatment of medication to help reduce your pain. If you feel that the complaint is not getting better, the doctor can perform additional examinations, such as X-rays, ultrasound, laboratory tests, CT scans, and so on to determine the best treatment. Then, the doctor will refer you to the right specialist if needed, for example, a neurologist, urologist, and so on.
In the meantime, first relieve your pain with a warm compress or applying a pain relieving cream (for example, one containing paracetamol) on the side of the painful hip. Don't be too heavy before, especially lifting heavy objects, bending for too long, running, going up and down stairs, and other extreme movements. Exercise regularly and maintain your ideal body weight. Make sure you drink enough, don't hold back the urge to defecate or urinate, and always live a healthy lifestyle. Finally, don't massage the painful hip area carelessly.
Hope it helps ..
