In brief: Gluteus Minimus
Concern would be for continued subgluteal bursitis or possible tear of the hip abductor muscle.
Begin anti-inflammatories for five days. If not improved followup with the person that made the initial diagnosis.

In brief: Find the cause.
Confirm proper seat height.
Be certain to do gentle stretches after cycling and consider the additional benefit of massage.

In brief: See an orthopaedist.
That history sounds a bit unusual.
Best to have an orthopaedist take a look to be sure the problem does in fact originate in the g. Medius. If so, physical therapy would be appropriate as a next step, possibly followed by a one-time cortisone injection if there is no improvement after 6-8 wks of pt.
