Why does my hip hurt?

The unpredictable nature of hip pain may make it seem as if it is coming from your knee or back, thereby making a correct diagnosis difficult. The pain may become worse if you sleep on the affected side; it may also worsen after you arise in the morning, but ease off after a period of time. Additionally, hip pain can sometimes cause you to experience a sharp pain when getting up from a sitting position or be so unbearable that you cannot put your weight on the joint at all.
