Pain in hips while walking

I have been having pain in my hips.  I try to walk without crutches or walker in the house.  SOmetimes I have such pain in moving my hips that I cry with the pain.  I have a full leg brace on one leg, but pulling that forward creates an incrediable pain in the hips. Both hips.  I try to walk without aid because I think it is helping me keep strength. BUt not I am not sure.  I feel weaker and hurt more.  Any suggestions or heop.
