Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a pinched nerve in the hip.

A pinched nerve in the hip often causes pain in the groin area.

I recommend to use anti-inflammatory medication such as Naproxen 500 mg three tablets a day.

I also recommend to use ice compresses for relief in the area of pain.

I suggest to do gentle stretches and exercises to help relieve the pain.

If the symptoms continue you should see a neurologist for further evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
