hip pain

For the past few days I have experienced what feels like a muscle strain on my right hip (anterior and posterior) deep inside. The “pulling” sensation is only evident when I place the majority of my weight on my left leg and then my entire right hip (mostly posterior) is quite sore. I do sit cross-legged much of the time but the pain is not noticeable when I sit in that positon or when rising from that position. Pain is only noticeable when bearing weight on opposite leg.Any stretching exercises would be appreciated. Sitting in a bath seems to alleviate some of the pain. Ibuprofen dulls it slightly but not completely.

    I’m thinking you are on the younger side since you are still able to sit cross legged. Do you do sports? You could have an overuse injury, hairline fracture of maybe a strain. How about seeing a doc just to at least rule out something serious. Once a fracture, tumor or any other “bad” thing is ruled out then I would recommend stretching your hip.
