I get what I call the "icepick in the hip" feeling when I am walking and put my weight on my right leg. I get it the most when I am walking down my front steps. The stabbing pain comes out of the blue and usually will get better after I walk around for a while. I'm sure it is referred from my SI joint. My hip is fine, I'm sure.
I am thinking that heat or ice would help. Mine usually don't last long enough to find out.
