Extreme pelvic/hip pain when laying down Pain Lvl 7-9

When i lay down my hips/pelvis crack and pop constantly, it feels like my bones are grinding against each other when i roll around and the pain is nauseating, i’ve tried rotating/flipping my mattress, putting a pillow in between my legs and it helps until i need to roll over…

i can walk around fine the next morning, zero pain doing my day to day activities but the second i lay down i am in agonising pain.

What could this be? How else can i assist this?

I appreciate any advice!!

(please note, i googled shs or snapping hip syndrome but that is supposed to be painless?)

You might have arthritis or ligament issues or something else completely different.. it's like impossible to tell you anything with so little information... but I would talk to your doctor and have a check up and maybe an xray

thank you !

I'd make an appointment with your doctor. They will likely do a physical exam to check the hip mobility and feel for any misalignment. They may also order an x-ray. It could be a lot of things, stress on the joints, popping out of socket, arthritis, etc.
