Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Is it your knee or your hip?
More like the inner side of my groin where the femur connects to the illium I think. The entire leg feels like it is hanging on with no real support...
Are you there?
You may be experiencing recurrent hip dislocations, this is very dangerous and it could lead to a fracture of your hip
I would advise you to have an x ray of this as soon as possible if it happens again
I would recommend you see an orthopedic surgeon for this
If it is simple, it may be improved upon with physical therapy, but there is a chance it will require surgery, and only an x ray and an exam can determine the necessary treatment and next best step
would there be a lot of pain if that were the case?
There usually would be pain, but there are cases where patients have no pain
Would a visit to my primary physician be sufficient before seeing a surgeon?
Yes, you can see your primary physician first
I guess it is not likely to just go away then? Or get better?
I doubt that it will just go away
Thank you for your advice.
You're quite welcome
