I read through lots of post about women having hip pain at night. I started out having hip pain at night while sleeping on my side (both hips). Now both hips are aching constantly and sometimes I will have a "catch" in my sciatic area that takes my breath for a second. The pain is also radiating to my knees occasionally. It is starting to affect my daily activities. I have not started taking Ibuprofen because I don't want to depend on pain relievers. I have tried sleeping with a pillow between my knees to no avail. I have to sleep on my back to get any relief. I was diagnosed to tibial band syndrome and sought PT. That helped the "popping" band but not the hip pain. The two don't seem to be related. I sleep on an orthopedic friendly mattress but have a 10 inch memory foam top on it. Does this sound arthritic in nature? I am not opposed to seeing a chiropractor but have not had good experiences with the only 2 I've ever seen.
