Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you have any other medical condition?

Based on your symptoms you have weak hip flexion problem at right side.

This can occur due to the herniated disc or muscle spasm at L1-2 lumbar region on right side.

Nerve compression at that area can cause such weakness.

Xrays of the lumbar spine should be considered initially.

Physical therapy also will help to improve the symptoms.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
