See your Dr: Any Back/hip pain accompanied by weakness is worth a full physical and neurological exam. Talk to your Primary Care Doctor for a thorough evaluation. They can also send you for imaging if they suspect a serious problem. the most common causes of this pain and weakness are nerve impingements or inflammation. Underlying conditions can also contribute such as Diabetes.
