Sclerotic right femoral head of hip is visualized mean exactly?

Waiting on my Dr's answer to my recent spinal X-ray ... I have been experiencing pain from my hip down to my toe on right side with tingling and numbness on occasion and recently spreads across my lower back recently.  This is one thing that popped up on my x-ray ....

Oh gosh, that sounds painful.  Have you since seen your doctor for explanation of the results of the x ray?  Please update us.  Sclerosis means abnormal hardening. They are talking about the ball at the top of your hip. Let me know what the doctor says about this. They probably started you on nsaids?  If you are overweight at all, they usually recommend weight loss.  Surgery is last resort.
