    pain on hips.....
    gringa1 posted:
    Before I was diagnosed with fibro and lupus, I was unable to sleep on my right side, as soon as lay down on my right my hip would start to hurt, I would try to ignore it or reposition myself hoping the pain would go away, but it wouldn't it only get worse. What I'm asking here is as anyone experienced this and is it common. To this day I can not sleep on my right.

    I have terrible bursitis in my hips. Laying directly on my hips is darn near impossible 95% of the time. I don't know your age, so It could be arthritis, degeneration.... Who knows. I would talk to your rheumy about it.
