What does a cracked bone feel like?

I swear I think I have cracked my hip bone. It is KILLING me! Right where my leg and hip meet. I cannot put any weight on my foot or my hip hurts. It also hurts any time I lift my foot up. I cannot move my leg from side to side w/out pain. I have to lift myself up from sitting w/my arms.

I haven't fallen or anything, so I don't understand what has happened. I did walk on the treadmill last night for the first time in ages, but my other hip does not hurt. My neck is also sore and stiff but not painful.

You may have a pinched nerve in your hip?

The treadmill could have jarred your hip. Maybe not cracked the bone, just the motion strained it. Take some alleve if you can and ice it some. If it isn't better by monday, go see your dr.

I am recovering from a stress fracture in my ankle. I got it while training for a half marathon. I was fine on our training run, but woke up the next morning with pain similar to a sprained ankle. There was no swelling or black and blue area, but I could not put any weight on the foot. I tried icing it and resting it and using an ankle ace bandage, but at the end of the week (school break) it was no better, and I saw an orthopedist. An MRI confirmed that it was indeed a stress fracture. From reading my running forums, people can and do get stress fractures in the hip area also. I would definitely have it checked out just to rule out anything more serious than a routine muscle ache. In my case, within 2 weeks, the pain disappeared, and if I had gone back to running, I could have really injured myself badly by fully breaking that bone. Good luck with your problem.

I'd be pretty surprised if you could fracture your hip without a major fall. But I do know you can dislocate your hip and it is excruciatingly painful. That would make more sense than a fracture. After a car accident mine used to pop out fairly regularly and I couldn't put any weight on it or anything. My physio diagnosed it and showed me how to pop it back in.

You have to go to a doctor. Take Monday off, get a sub, and get it checked.
