Pain in back of upper legs

I have pain in the very upper back of my legs and the inside of my legs where the thigh meets the body.  It began a few weeks ago.  I am 64 and have been a type 2 diabetic for 5 years.  I also have been treated for hypertension and high cholesterol levels since the age of 50.  I take daily Glucophage 500 x 2, Januvia 100, Actos 30 (newly prescribed), Lisinopril 40, Amlodopine 10 (newly prescribed), and HCTZ 25.  What do you think is the cause of my pain?  Thanks.

A doctors physical exam is necessary to rule out muscle, joint, or nerve damage.

Did your leg pain start after starting your new medication?
Have you started doing something physical recently- walking more, exercising more/less?
Have you had a doctor look at your leg for poor circulation, nerve, tendon and/or muscle damage?
