Brief Answer:
Hip arthritis possibly

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

Thanks for the query,

It is possible that you could be having arthritis of the hip.

Avoid cross leg sitting, climbing stairs and kneeling.

Do get a Xray of the hip to confirm.

Avoid too much of Advil as they can also cause stomach ulcers (Alternatively you may take Tylenol after some food).

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer you're follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr.Aashish Raghu
