I have osteoarthritis in my spine and sometimes my left hip heats up but now for the past month or so my right leg has been hurting in the thigh area and hip. It's mostly at night and when I try to raise it, it hurts. I take tramadol daily so while at work after taking one it doesn't really hurt but going up the stairs to my apt. at night it hurts and as I say; it's mostly at night. I went to the doctor and she set up an xray referral for me and I plan on going next week. A year ago I fell and broke my left elbow and left foot at the same time but my ride side has never had any injuries and I'm a strong and vibrant woman of 59 years and can't believe that now my right side has problems. Hope its just a sprain of some king and not arthritis.
