I, too, have had this painful, dull nagging ache in my right hip near my buttocks. I had it about a year ago and ended up going to a really excellent chiropractor who created a six week plan to include stretches, exercise, tens, massage therapy and adjustments. By week three of six, I was back to normal and felt amazing. However, after six weeks, I didn't continue for the occasional stretch/adjustment and now, a year later, I'm back experiencing the same issues. Advil PM or Zquil seem to be the best solution until I can financially get back to the Chiropractor.
