Any pain: That is serious enough to interfere with your day today function and quality of life need to be investigated and treated promptly . The site of the pain and its distribution is a bit confusing to make any specific recommendation. I suggest that you see your doc /orthopedic doc. Good luck with it

Possibly sciatica: There are multiple potential causes and i would encourage you to be seen. One possible cause is sciatica, which is the irritation of a nerve in the back that can cause pain in the hip and leg. An exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause. Thank you.

Many possibilities: Your pain could be as a result of many different things. A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis, tight shoes), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy).
