Is sharp pain at the lower abdomen and above the thigh indicative of hernia?

I have a sharp pain at the front of my hip at the top of my thigh where it nears my lower abdomen. This pain only occurs when I bend over and lasts there after for a few seconds. It then goes away and does not recur until I bend over again. Any idea what this could be? Maybe a hernia?

It is unlikely be an hernia. The symptoms are more likely suggestive of musculo-skeletal causes like sprain or contusion. As of now you can use analgesics/anti inflammatory combination like Aceclofenac/Seratiopeptdase for symptomatic relief. You can go for an ultrasound scan to rule out hernia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing you all the best.
