Sounds like bursitis to me - don't leave it as it can become absolute agony.

Am peri-menopausal grin and had this in left buttock/hip but now have it in both....I read up on bursitis and it fits the symptoms but tbh I think its also because I have become fairly untoned so not sure the menopause is to blame. Interested in the idea of menopausal arthritis!

Yep, you do need to see your GP.
I have an achy left hip, it's on the outside and runs down the side of the leg. My GP diagnosed it as Bursitis, and yep, first line treatment is the good old anti-inflamatories!
I find the ache can be worst at night, and it can be very uncomfortable whilst trying to sleep.
But yes, it could be many things, so get yourself off to that GP!
