Dear Anonymous,

I'm sorry to hear about your moms pain.

There are prescription pills such as Boniva and Reclast taken for osteoporosis. Is your mom on any of these? Has she been to her doctor for the pain?

Thank you for the information but I was thinking of getting a cream for the burning sensation in both hips. If that does not work, we will bring her to see the doctor.
