Default Right hip pain in ext. rotation

I had my right hip examined by a doc. last week as it has been giving me pain during most activities. When I was working at a restaurant over the summer it always hurt and I figured it was just due to being on my feet for so many hours at a time. Once school started back up I wasen't standing for 8 hours a shift, but I am still having pain.
I had my right hip examined by a doc. and we found that external rotation is what irritates my hip. Which makes sense, for the last few months things like pistol squat progressions, weight squats, etc. have bothered my hip. Usually by the end of the day after walking to classes and being on my feet at my affiliate my hip is in agony. Judging from google images if I had to take a stab at the source of the pain, I would say the femoral head. Last week I tried weighted front squats and my hip was hurting days after.

Even though I train primarily upper body gymnastics, I still warm up my lower body every workout with: Eric Cressy's foam rolling series, forward & lateral leg swings, 10 sec hip flexor stretch, 10 sec. glute stretch, lateral lunge stretches, spiderman lunges, and 10-15 air squats. I have pretty decent hip mobility.

Training I usually rotate leg exercises from Coach Sommers BtGB book of pistol prog., and bodyweight leg curls. However I have stopped doing pistol progressions due to the pain.

Any ideas what I could be dealing with here? I am getting an MRI set up next week sometime, just wanted to get an idea of what I could be looking at here.

It should be noted that my left hip is completely fine. Before I stopped training pistols the other week I performed 7 full ROM pistol squats on it. The only lower body injuries/ surgeries I have ever had was ankle reconstruction on my right ankle.

Any suggestions on possible injury and training would be greatly appreciated.
