Have pain in left hip. Have more pain when sitting or lying down. No medication still now. What is it?

I have started having pain in my left hip area. The middle of left buttock feels like a deep bruise. The left outer side of my hip burns. Walking doesn't really hurt but bringing my leg up to put on shoe or sock really hurts. I also get burning/numbness down front of leg especially when lying down. I feel more pain when sitting or lying down and not much when walking. Every once I a while I will get pain with walking.

You need to consult ortho Dr for the investigation procedure like x ray and mri scan to rule out the nerve compression in the lumbar region and follow these suggestions
Don't bend forward and don't ride a bike for longer time and in an dumpy road
Don't sit continuously in one place for longer time
While sitting rest both foot in a very small stool to prevent nerve pull.
Don't carry heavy object.
After consulting ortho Dr follow the exercise as prescribed by the Dr.
Take care
Get well soon.
