64 yo female. Hip pain at night only. I finally determined it was cramps in my psoas and illiacus muscles. (I've had occasional problems with foot cramps at night for years.) I studied stretches for these muscles on youtube, adopted an exercise regime, and am immensely better after three months. Problems correlate to walking vigorously uphill or sitting for a few hours in a strange chair during the day, so I am especially vigilant in doing stretches after such an activity. If I wake up hurting, I get up, do stretches, take an aspirin, and am usually fine.
