Horrible hip pains

My boyfriend, who is 17, has been having horrible hip pains for the last 3 years when he stands or walks.

Any idea to what it is?

Even at his young age, he could be experiencing the pain of arthritis.  There are so many possibilities, I would strongly advise you to ask him to see a GP and get a referral to a specialist.
Hope this helps.

hip pain might be caused by many things but i personally lean to kidney problems ...

thank you!
I've been pushing him to see a dr, but he's been skeptical... I'm going to keep trying.
thanks for the help! :)
