Get xrays: You need evaluation by ortho. Sounds like osteoarthritis. Need to determine degree.

Arthritis : Your symptoms suggest osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Painful motion is typical early as is pain w/ weight bearing.As the arthritis progresses loss of internal rotation is often found on physical exam. Pain in groin, thigh and buttock are characteristic.Some patients note difficulty tying shoes and similar motions... Time to see an orthopedic surgeon for examination, x-rays and treatment! gl!
