In brief: Bursitis

Sounds like - pain on the outside of the hip along the bone is called trochanteric pain syndrome or bursitis .
The tightness and catching can be due to a band of tissue the it band which has gotten tight and feels like it catches. Stretch by crossing your legs in a standing position and try to touch the sides of your ankles leaning over the side. Ice and antiinflammatories may help as well.
