In brief: Sacroiliac

If there is a leg length discrepancy, there may be irritation of the sacroiliac joint.
This would produce sharp, stabbing pain in the hip/ buttock which can radiate to the groin or upper leg. It would also cause you to lean on the opposite hip to relieve the stress. Other related causes include gluteal strain , and piriformis syndrome.
