hip pain

For the past few days I have experienced what feels like a muscle strain on my right hip (anterior and posterior) deep inside.
The "pulling" sensation is only evident when I place the majority of my weight on my left leg and then my entire right hip (mostly posterior) is quite sore.
I do sit cross-legged much of the time but the pain is not noticeable when I sit in that positon or when rising from that position. Pain is only noticeable when bearing weight on opposite leg.
Any stretching exercises would be appreciated. Sitting in a bath seems to alleviate some of the pain. Ibuprofen dulls it slightly but not completely.

The medical grade mineral oil released from the gel onto the skin also helps to soften dry skin and to reduce scar tissue by improving the mobility and elasticity of the skin after scarring.
