I am a 46 year old female. I have had severe right hip pain for 6 months. X-rays show my hip is bad,whatever that means. My sed rate is very high although rheumatoid factor is negative. Can anyone give me advice as to what could be causing this?

Seems a long time since you posted so maybe you already have your answer? Still -

if you had children & tended to carry them & parcels etc on one side it would create an imbalance & so this problem?

Chondriotin & glocosamine tabs(like 750 to 1000 mg pd each or even 2pd if really bad) may help but expect results to take 4 - 8 weeks.
