    Hi @emmylou
    Thanks for your post and welcome to our community! 
    I'm sorry to read that you are in discomfort.I'm not able to speculate as to whether the lower back pain is linked to your hip issue. I would recommend that you talk to your G.P. and explain what you are experiencing.

    Stay in touch.

    I have left side weakness and have lower back pain. I went and saw my GP he sent me for an MRI and said that I have a damaged disc which my CP is likely not to helped.

    I’m in my early 30s and have suffered from back pain on and off for years particularly since my mobility got worse in my mid 20s, one thing that’s really helped is hydrotherapy, also going to the gym, as it keeps my body more balanced and my posture has improved.
