I would see your doctor before continuing to walk like this
you might need a hip xray or MRI scan to see what is going on
this could be bad arthritis or burisitis or tendonitis in your hip.
you might need a steroid injection into your hip to decrease inflammation.
you could have siatica pinched nerves in your lower back causing pain to go into your hip and radiate down into your leg.
do you have a doctor you can see who can examine your hip and lower back area?
