Ask your physio or the pain clinic if they have a TENS machine you can borrow to try out. I borrowed one from mine then went out and bought the same model, it's fantastic, don't think I'd survive without it.
I tried "support pants/shorts" didn't seem to help me with but they were just really cheap ones.
Pain clinics are discussed elsewhere, as are meds
I've never actually thought wether my wonky hips or SI Joints are visible to others or how they affect my walk
I use a crutch now. I have osteoarthritis in my left hip, the pain from that tends to be in my groin and made worse if my leg is rotated inwards, and when my hip shifts out of place the pain can be in my groin, butt cheek and/or just a deep ache right inside if you know what I mean. I find it's the SI pain more than any other that is unbearable and causes the most problems with getting around. Bending over and leaning on something helps relieve the pain a bit.
