Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHer! Thank you for your question. I am sorry to learn you are experiencing chronic pain. The symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) include a feeling of discomfort in various parts of your body, itchiness, or a feeling of "pins and needles" in the legs. These symptoms often worsen at night, causing restlessness.

Hip pain around your upper thigh and buttocks could signify problems with your muscles, ligaments, tendons and soft tissue around your hip joint. Please visit your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. 

Do you have any other questions? Please contact us and inform us of how you are doing.

Best Wishes,
