Upon further investigation, it's the Periformis syndrome, very common indeed.

 

I did the stretch shown on this website and it really helped.    I sometimes am guilty of wearing the same walking shoes too long, because they are so comfortable.  One of the reasons for this muscle pull is ill fitting shoes, apparently.

 

So, I took out another pair that I had bought a while back and will wear those tomorrow on my walk.

 

So glad the stretch they showed worked and loosened it up a bit.

That's it. I had that on my left side several years ago. Now I have it on the right side. The pain went down the left side of my leg. I had to do stretches, use the heating pad & had DH rub the area with one of those Goosebump massage balls Q sold years ago. That massage ball really helps. Riding our recumbent bike seems to be aggravating it.
