Muscle strain: It is possible that you strained the muscle or ligaments of your hip putting that kind of pressure on it. Take antiinflamatories consistently for several days and apply ice packs to the area for up to 20 minutes at a time. If the discomfort persists or it becomes difficult to walk consult a Dr in person for a thorough evaluation.
