Kidney pain

I'm 16 years old and a varsity cheerleader, I dont drink as much water as i should be drinking i mostly drink sweet tea and grape juice, I have a "sore" pain on my left hip pretty much on the bone. Is this because I dont drink  enough water?

Hi!
If you are out in the son a lot and do not drink enough water then yes, dehydration and electrolyte imbalance can cause pain. Otherwise, hip pain can be due to arthritis. Hip joint pain can also be due to old fractures, avascular necrosis of head of thigh bone (poor blood supply), muscle strain, inflammation of tendon and even due to sciatica. An X-ray of the joint, followed by MRI of the joint and lower spine, and nerve conduction studies may be required for confirmed diagnosis. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
