Right leg pain

I'm 24 years old, and I am haveing this really sharp pain in my right leg, where the hip meets your leg, in the back on the leg. If i sit, stand, or walk in a way that I would normally do I can't do it for long. it's been a week and it is only getting worse. Don't know what it is or what caused it. but would like to know how to get it to stop.

It sounds like your sciatica.  In the short term take some ibuprofen and do a stretch where you put the ankle of the leg bothering you on top of the knee of the other one.  Sit up straight and then while arching your back press down on the knee of the leg you have up.

Check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.  Then you may want to try massage, chiropractic or acuptuncture.
