Hip pain. Arthritis and rheumatoid Arthritis are negative

I have chronic pain in left hip. Blood tests for . x-rays and a Nuclear scan showed nothing abnormal. I can't sleep on my left side at all, and have pain radiating down my left leg at night when lying down. I often sleep in my recliner as this seems to alleviate some of the pain. Anti-Inflamatories and pain killers give some relief but not for the night time. What can I do next?

This may be a long shot, but have you been tested for HTLV? It can cause the joint pain during sleep that you described.

I'll jump the gun and suggest that you try Xeljanz (Tofacitinib). It's an approved Arthritis drug that also happens to be effective against HTLV.

Best wishes.
