Our expert says:
I am not sure whether your diagnosis is Osteoporosis or Osteoarthritis. In essence, Osteoporosis is a condition where you lose bone density. This is not a particularly painful condition, although some patients do report a mild background ache, which may be associated. Osteoarthritis can be an extremely painful condition but can be successfully rectified with hip replacement surgery. I would advise you to book a consultation with an Orthopaedic surgeon for their opinion and treatment options.
