What causes sharp muscle spasms in the groin area?

Sharp muscles spasms around left groin area. Only last a few seconds but makes me scream it hurts so bad. Been going on over a week. I woke up 2 weeks ago and got out of bed at 4 a.m. and it was the first time I have ever experienced anything like this as it took me to the floor. I seem to be getting better day by day but they are still happening once in a while. Went to family doctor and was given pridizone for 6 days. Went to Orthopedic doctor and they thought could be possible labram tear from hip. It is in the same area where I had a hernia with net back in 2002. I had just started back walking a few weeks ago and exercise in gym regularly. Plus I had been undergoing Varicose Vein Treatment and had to go back to ensure no blood clot. Any help would be appreciated.

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, such pain of intensity could be due to muscular spasm and it can be best try with Tab Chlorzoxazone with Diclofenac once in day, try to maintain the good posture try avoid the steroid, role of this is questionable, you have not mentioned your age and gender else something better could have been advised hope this information helps.
