    I’m 54, I’ve never had children and nor have I ever been in any accidents. That stated, I have EXTREME pain in my hips and I have lower back pain on the lower right side. I had an X-ray exam of the pelvis and right and left hips- with a frontal view of pelvis and hips in neutral and frog-leg lateral position. My pelvis is intact. The sacroiliac joints are maintained. The right and left hip joints are maintained. There is smooth articular margins. There is normal range of motion.
    The overall finding was an anomalous development of the L5 segment which is sacralized on the right.

    Do I have Bertolotti Syndrome?

    Unlikely. Bertolotti’s syndrome is by itself rare and is not related to hip pain, especially bilateral pain. I would look at hip impingement syndrome which is not commonly recognized by nonspecialist physicians. You would need a specialist to look at your films and even a pelvis MRI.
