Upper hip/thigh pain

I am experiencing pain the upper hip and under thigh for almost 2 years now. It's not very acute pain but it's annoying. It goes off when I sleep. Also it feels better when pressure is applied near tail bone region. Doctor's opinion is its due to increased belly and posture. MRI shows nothing. Increases with longer walks/ standing for long. How can I make it stop?

Hi there...pain or paraesthesia involving the upper thigh could be due to sciatica or neuropathy involving anterior cutaneous nerves of the thigh or very rarely could be hansens neuropathy. It will need detailed clinical examination and further tests like nerve conduction study, nerve ultrasound. So kindly consult a neurologist or dermatologist for further evaluation.
