Not usual : First c an orthopod and b sure u do not have intrinsic hip problem, if not after xam ? X- rays ask 4 alternative exercises u may substitute. Does sound like a person with an arthritic condition, especially if u have morning pain when awake with some same type of pain which clears with movement.
