In brief: Hard to say

There are multiple potential causes, but the two most common is either a sciatica or a tendinitis on the side of the hip.
The tendinitis condition is sometimes referred to as iliotibial band syndrome, tensor fascia lat a syndrome or as a bursitis of the hip and often responds well to a cortisone injection if lesser interventions fail. Thankyou for your question.

In brief: Pinched nerve

Your symptoms suggest you might have problems with your low back with nerve compression.
Your age, medical history, surgeries, possible trauma are important in deciding the most probable cause and the needed testing including X-ray/MRI/nerve ending testing. If you had recent trauma or you experience lack of sensation or weakness on in the leg, you should go immediately to ER to have an MRI
