Anyone experiencing hip pain when sleeping? I walk two to three miles most days ,I have no pain. I am not overweight,but once asleep hips will ache. I am thinking pressure points.

    Yes, I have this often. Likely it is the way you sleep putting pressure on the hip joint. If you are a side sleeper try putting a thick pillow between you knees. That helps.

    Yes, I have had this too.  My mom too at around 50--  it was time for a new mattress for her.  We bought a new mattress, I sleep with a pillow between my knees and I swim.  I also take many supplements.

    Hi Michelle, I am 55, I too experience this pain off and on. I thought it was my bed, I changed the bed and I still have hip pain. Man menopause is a mother of a doozy. It is the gift that did not want, but keeps on giving.

      Hi Karen, I know this really stinks!! I’m 52... so I guess I have a ways to go still!!! My hips ache and my calf’s . So over it! Have you found anything that helps? I try to do light yoga and stretching seems to help a little bit!

    I wake up with aching hips. My heels are also super tight when I first get out of bed. To the extent that my husband mentioned it. I haven’t found a solution yet.
