[QUOTE=AuntieLeela;3906850]Arthritis in the hips or maybe sciatica (nerve pain)? Do you have any lower back problems?[/QUOTE]

This happens to me all the time and I have sciatica and lower back problems. Herniates disks and such. I also have arthritis in my hip. My orthopedic surgeon gave me cortisone injections in the lower disks, 4 of them and it helped a lot.
Hope you feel better soon.
Hi Zklo...I think you have 2 different things going on here. The pain you describe in your butt, low back and the outside of your left foot are characteristic of a pinched nerve in your lower back. You should have your back checked, preferably with a lumbar MRI to see if you have herniated a disk.

But the pain in your hips when you lie on your sides is most likely bursitis. There are huge bursas on the sides of you hips that keep the powerful leg muscles moving smoothly and when the get inflamed, they just ache and can make every step painful. That can be treated with cortisone shots to the bursas....pain will go away slowly but surely but can return unless you learn to stay off your hips when sleeping.

If you have a pinched nerve in your back, that is another whole set of problems and I'd love to have you join up on the Back Problems board.
