Gluteus Medius is a muscle of the buttock which attaches to a bony prominence on the outside of the hip. There are also two bursa (fluid filled sacs) which lie in this area with the role of preventing friction, able to expand and swell to do so. Irritation of the Gluteus Medius tendon (attaching muscle to bone) can lead to tendinopathy and cause you the following symptoms to the outside of your hip.
