After spending the day doing a lot of walking I have developed pain in both groin and also mons pubis. If I stand and cough the mons pubis pain is worse. The groin pain has subsided. No pain when I am sitting but does occur if I squeeze my knees together. I have no back pain. Could this be inflammatory? I don't walk as much as I should. (I am a 62 yr old woman). No fever, sweats etc.

Thanks for posting your query.
The pain you are having could be due to an overuse of your muscles and mild inflammation. This is likely to improve with adequate rest and mild pain killer like acetaminophen. Doing a hot fomentation will help in an early recovery.
You can also add calcium and vitamin D 3 supplements to your diet to avoid such recurrences.
I hope this answers your query.

What is a hot fomentation?
Answered by Dr. Praveen Tayal 2 hours later
Thanks for writing again.
A hot fomentation is same as a hot compress or a heat pad application. You can do that twice in a day. Applying a local analgesic gel in the area will also be helpful.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
