Brief Answer:
Get xray done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have had your query.

The symptoms you are explaining may be due to muscle pull or due to hair line fracture which may be due to vigorous exercise.

Previously you also giving history of trauma.

If I am your treating doctor, I would advise you to get X Ray of hip done in AP View and send me the report.

I also advise you to visit orthopedic surgeon for only and not General doctor.

Till then avoid any exercise.

Apply hot packs.

Have tab.aceclofenac100mg+serratiopeptidase15mg thrice a day by prescription of your treating doctor.

Thanks,

Is this why when I step or move a certain way my groin acts up and makes it hard to stand or lift my leg? The exercises my reg dr suggested were just stretching nothing vigorous

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for responding.

Ok, if your doctor asked you for that exercises, then also my friend there is one rule for doing even stretching exercises, and that rule is, if any exercise which you are doing is causing you pain then you stop it and tell your doctor.

Movement with pain means there is problem out or inside the joint.

That's the reason I advise you the xray.

So please get the xray its very important for you and me.

I will also see your joint space and surrounding tissue from xray.

I hope you got the answer.

Thanks,
