You can see your GP first - he needs to do the basic examination to see whether the pain is hip related or maybe coming from your back. He may decide to send you for x/rays or a bone densitity test. It could be hip bursitis, inflammation of the sinovial membranes inside the joints that is causing the pain, or arthritis of the joint or referred pain from a pinced nerve in your back.
