In brief: Arthritis

You likely are beginning to have some arthritis in the hips.
So when you sit for too long, the joint capsule, ligaments etc are stiff from mild inflammation and hurt to stretch when no movement for awhile. This may be diet related. Learn from: drmcdougall.Com, 'star mcdougallers' section. 'foods that fight pain', or 'eat to live' books that teach how to stop the causes. 10 cups h2o/day, no pop.

In brief: See doctor

Would see your doctor and get an x-ray and perhaps some lab tests.
It is likely related to osteoarthritis but the studies would give you and the doctor a better handle on what to do.
