Tight hip flexors or something else?

Hiya
Any sport/physio/exercise gurus able to offer me some advice? I have problems around my hip joints when doing exercise. I had SPD quite badly in pregnancy nine years ago, and I'm not sure if it is related.

Basically, I find anything that requires me to sort of lift my legs out sideways really hurts. I can do a few top leg lifts while lying on my side, but then it gets painful. It hurts in the crease between my body and thigh, and also on the outside of my hip. I also find it very hard to straddle anything wide.

It doesn't hurt in the normal course of my life, and I play netball fine. But I really seem quite constrained by this one kind of movement. It really hurts; I yelp and have to stop, and sort of give my hip time to knit together again!

Any ideas??
