Hip pain: Sounds like sciatica--a pinched nerve that is caused by a bulging or herniated disc, that refers pain down the leg in a specific distribution. Also consider hip arthritis if groin pain is an issue. Check x-rays of hip and pelvis.

Could be. See orthop: Edist to get it evaluated and treated.
One can have sciatica without any back pain.

Pinched Nerve: Sounds like you have a pinched nerve in your back. I would suggest seeing a pain/spine specialist to evaluate you further to evaluate what level and what can be done to treat you. There are interventional treatments besides medications and surgeries that might reduce or eliminate the pain altogether.
