No: No one can help over the internet. The area needs to be examined and appropriate testing done to establish a cause. Have it evaluated.

Need a diagnosis: You could possess primary hip pathology such as a bony problem, but may have referred pain from sacra-iliac joint or even lumbar spine. Local nerve pain could cause symptoms over thing, meralgia paresthetica. See your physician and get anatomy clarified. Treatment success should follow.
