Did you feel any pain prior to starting your walking routine ? If your pain seems to coincide with walking one thing I would suggest is checking your shoes. What kind of shoes do you wear when you're walking ? Don't wear any old shoe. When you walk or run, your feet require good support. So, if you're wearing old shoes that don't have support, some of your pain could be a result of the shoes you're wearing. In which case, I would suggest being fitted for a proper pair of walking shoes by a reputable sports store.
Could SP suggest a stretch ? yes and no. The problem is that some stretches might make the pain worse.
One thing I would suggest is giving your doctor a quick call. If this problem has been occuring for 4+ weeks, something else may be going on. It doesn't hurt to get a professional opinion. You don't want an intermittent pain to become chronic.

Good morning! I have been walking again for about a month now, but I occasionally get some pain in the interior part of my hip. When I walk, it usually eases, but I want to be sure that I don't aggravate a problem when I walk briskly.
Is there a stretch or something that you can suggest that might help?
also wanted to mention that I usually have pain when getting up from sitting, not when I exercise...
