No injury, but incredible pain after sitting

Elise (taken off net)

I have had this for a few months, but I did not get it from an injury. It has developed and is getting worse. I am a stay-at -home mom, so I don't have a lot of time to sit down. But when I do sit for more than 15 minutes, I have incredible pain when I try to get up again, and then for the remainder of the day. I am going for an x-ray tomorrow. Does anyone else have this pain and not remember injuring the area?
