I have another thread going discussing my new stenosis diagnosis. The main symptom that I have been having is a sore right hip. It would burn at night if I slept on it wrong. Sometimes it just aches but usually stretches and some advil take care of it. But in all my years of back problems, L5 S1 herniation 15 years ago and then fusion in 2007, never did my hip hurt. I would swear I had a hip issue before the studies. Doc thinks it is the stenosis and does not want to really address the hip. I guess I am wondering if anyone else has a lot of their symptoms in the hip. Like I said, I was convinced I had a hip issue, not another back issue. He says i have arthritic stenosis at the l4 level above the fusion.

Hip pain, is it really my back?
