What Causes Pain In The Entire Back Of The Crease Of The Leg?

I am a 56 yr old female. For 2 months now, I have not been able to sit crisscross, due to pain in my left inside leg at the bottom of the crease. Now it has begun to hurt while I am walking. I have not injured my leg in any way. These symptoms just came on by itself. The entire back of the crease in my leg hurts when I get up and I limp for a few minutes. It almost feels like I could walk it out, but that does not happen.

there could be many reasons for the pain like cyst,old injury,synovial bursitis and what I suspect is hamstring strain,however without being evaluated can't be sure for that so you need to show it to a physio or orthopedic doctor.
Till then give rest,dont try to strain that part by repeatedly doing the same movement like cross sitting.
also having a knee cap or a crape bandage can help you to some extent while walking.
hope you find this useful of you need any help can revert back
