Left hip pain at night and needing to pee every 2-3 hours

First of all.. I am not pregrant. So that can be ruled out. This has been going on for about 2 months now and I am so tired of not being able to sleep without pain or waking up. I have been to my doctor and she has already done a urine test for infection but came back negative.
I am fine once I get up and move around all day ( no pain or discomfort) once i go to bed I usually wake up every 2-3 hours needing to pee as i get a lot of pressure. during that time i can barely move to get out of bed because my left lower hip area is so sore.

Is there something else I should be asking my doctor to look at?? or do?? I am so desperate for a good night sleep without having to wake up to pee or move without pain

I have the same problem but it is my right hip. I have no pains in my hip when moving around during the day except then I have lower back pain. Anyway when the pain in my hip starts at night I have to pee. When I use the restroom the hip pain goes away until the next time. Even during the day when I lay on my right side.

Hi Cellie,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Have you had any imaging test done like an ultrasound.

Many things can cause frequent urination

  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Medicines such as diuretics
  • Overactive bladder syndrome
  • Prostatitis (infection of the prostate gland)
  • Stroke and other brain or nervous system diseases
  • Tumor or mass in the pelvis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginitis
  • You might want to suggest that to your doctor or get a second opinion from another doctor, especially an OBGYN.

    Here is a link that will help
