Leg Workout for my aching hip

My right hip has been driving me nuts since the middle of last week.  I've never ever had hip pain before and I want it to go away pronto.  The entire socket aches, a deep long lasting ache, and then I get shooting pains down the front of my quad and the side of my leg.  It doesn't bother me at all when I am exercising, but the minute I sit down at my desk or get in the car to drive I want to come right out of my seat in pain.  Once I am up and moving again or I get some Advil in my system then I am okay.

So, what better to do when my legs hurt, but a leg workout! At least I listened to Rich and did not run this morning....I promise you that it just about killed me to stay off the treadmill.
