While severe pain certainly isn't the normal aches and pains spineys get all the time, your reaction is similar. We all go to OMG first before considering alternatives.

Though I sincerely hope your pain subsides quickly, I'm glad your doctor has suggested it comes from your hip and as Maria said, you're probably over compensating without even realizing it.

By all means, stay on top of this but keep it in prospective. Our minds are very powerful instruments and I suspect more often than we're aware of, it works against us.

Having said all that, severe pain does carry more weight than those other aches and pains. I'm glad you immediately went to see your doc.
