Hello welcome to JA. the most likely problem is an inflammatory condition that first effected your lumbar spine, then your sacroiliac joint, and then your hip. It could be all neurological as well, called sciatica, an inflammation of the sciatic nerve. But we would have to discuss this more. Do you have pain shooting down the back of your thigh as well? any weakness or numbness in the leg? Any tingling or numbness on the foot? 'where? Is it more a mechanical sense of pain with movement of the hip, or pain even when at rest? let me know and I will reply. If you have any studies, MRI or EMG, let me know Dr Frank
