Q. What to do for severe hip pain during pregnancy?



Hi doctor,

My wife is 14 weeks pregnant. Since yesterday night, she has been suffering with severe left hip pain. She is unable to stand, sit and walk comfortably. It started with mild pain before a month. The pain seems to be unbearable. I have applied the pain reliever cream and spray, but it did not work. Kindly suggest me what I have to do.





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

  • Since your wife is pregnant, kindly visit an orthopedic surgeon for clinical evaluation as the condition can be due to multiple reasons ranging from vitamin D deficiency to transient osteoporosis of hip or referred pain from the pelvis.
  • Do not expose your wife to x-ray as it can harm the baby in the mother’s womb.
  • An MRI might be required depending upon the findings of the examination.
  • Only Acetaminophen (Paracetamol) is the safe analgesic for her during her pregnancy.
  • My recommendation is to visit your local orthopedic surgeon for clinical evaluation.
