I have pain in my R groin area. This causes me to not enjoy

Customer Question

I have pain in my R groin area. This causes me to not enjoy walking as that aggravates the issue. What could I do for this? This winter I did have a spiral fracture of my L femur, would this have anything to do with it. I am 79 yrs. old and want to get out and exercise. I go to the gym and walk for an hour every am. Is this ok? I have a min-pin (2yrs) and walk him so I walk 3-4 miles a day. It is not fun.

Hello!

Right groin pain aggravated by walking sounds to me MOST LIKELY to relate to your right hip joint. I advise that you follow up with an orhopedic specialist for this . Their physical exam can probably determine if pain is from the joint vs other causes. It may be arthritis of hip joint or other causes possible....

You may benefit from an anti-inflammatory regimen such as Aleve 1 tablet twice a day with food ( no problems with ulcers/ gastritis/ history of GI bleed / chronic kidney disease)

Supportive tests such as xrays are likely to be helpful to the diagnosis of your case ....

Not directly linked to prior fracture of left femur BUT possible that strain / altered gait in recovery might have some relationship...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,
