Within the past couple of weeks I find it impossible to sit for any length of time without a terrible ache in my hips/muscles? when I start to get up and walk. I actually shuffle for a few feet until my hips "loosen up" and then I can almost walk normal but they still ache. Stairs are difficult. I've never had a problem before this. I'm 54 years old and this seems to have come on rather suddenly, I have no other health problems to speak of (mold allergies and HBP, both under control), but all of a sudden I'm moving like I'm 99 years old! I can sit and move in ANY position without discomfort (legs crossed for yoga etc) except for walking I don't know where to turn for help or how long to wait to see if symptoms go away. Is this muscle or bone problems?
