Answer to your Health Question

Question: I fell off a chair about 3 months ago and I am having leg pain, hip pain and buttocks pain. Why would this show up now? Deanna

Answer: Dear Deanna,

Since it's been three months since your fall, the pain you are suffering may not be related to that incidence. Common causes for hip pain include:

- Arthirits
- Trochanteric bursitis
- Tendinitis
- Strain, sprain
- Sciatica

In order to get some relief from the pain, the following steps are recommended. If after a week the pain has not improved a visit to the doctor is advisable:

- Avoid activities that make the pain worse
- Take over the counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen
- Sleep on non-painful side with a pillow between legs.
