Functional Hip Anatomy

If i lie prone with my knee at 90 degree flexion, my internal rotation ROM is fine. However if i lie supine with my HIP at 90 degree flexion, the internal rotation is non existent and i get significant pain in my hip region on attempting even the slightest internal rotation of the hip. The more flexion at the hip joint, the less internal rotation possible. I am lost as to a diagnosis on this problem. Possible tightness in the external hip rotators??
