Pain in the distribubution you describe is usually related to either the hip joint, or the muscles around this joint /pelvis.
I would suggest that you see your doctor as soon as possible for a full history, an examination to include range of motion, and power as well as possible MRI or X ray.
Things that we need to rule out are avascular necrosis, osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis as well as simpler things like pulled muscle.
Once the diagnosis has been made and assuming that urgent surgical intervention is not necessary then treatment will be a combination of tylenol, ibuprofen and physical therapy.
