Pain going from hip down to leg

Hi

I am experiencing extreme hip pain on my right side, especially during ironing or doing the dishes. Since last night even doing some household chores the pain increases and stays for longer periods. After the pain starts in my hip it goes down into my right leg, the pain is so bad it feels like my leg is going numb.

I was diagnosed with PCOS in Feb. 2008.

Could this be the cause of the pain on my right side?

Dear MB
This sounds to me more like a pinched nerve due to a slipped disc. Rather let your GP have a look as you may need x/ray or scan of your lower spine.
