Have hip pain and weakness. Working out and muscle fitness. Will this worsen the scenario?

I have hip pain and weakness after sitting indian style. I am 44 years old, 134 lbs, 5 5 . I have trouble walking after I get up from sitting on the floor. After a few minutes, it goes away and feels better. The pain is not during the sitting phase... it is only after getting up. I walk like an 80 year old woman... hunched and in pain for a few minutes, and then its ok. Does this ring a bell to anyone? I work out at the gym with cardio and muscle fitness but this has been happening long before going to the gym. It has not improved or worsened with this activity.

Thanks for writing to us.
Working out will help in maintaining your muscle strength and tone. It will also retard the progression of the muscle weakness. Do continue with the exercises.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
