I had a similar problem last year. It felt like there were shards of glass in my hips cutting into me with every step. This would kick in at about the 12km mark (I was training for a long distance hike at the time).
I thought it was all over for me, but I saw an Osteopath who sorted me out completely after just two visits. I couldn't believe it! I had a lot of tightness in the muscles in my hip, glutes and lower back which lead to tightness in my quads as well (didn't even realise they were sore until I visited the Osteopath.)
So spending $130 to fix it was a great investment, and I got about $50 back on health insurance. I've never had trouble with my hips walking again.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
