severe hip pain in both hips

Posted , 3 users are following.

In 2004 I had a 12 foot fall directly to my head which caused severe head trauma, nerve damage in my neck, herniated disk & nerve damage to my lower back. The last few months I have have severe pain in both my hips with weakness to my legs. but after my fall I used to have weakness to my legs without pain in my hips, now my legs are getting weaker day by day. I do have severe arthritis also. Can the pain in my hips be from the fall & sciatic damage or arthritis/? What kind of doctor should I see for this?
