Since when is the pain?

How severe is the pain on the scale of 0-10?

Is there any tenderness, bloating, gas, urinary burning, increased frequency of urination, constipation/diarrhea, nausea/vomiting?

Any unprotected sex?

Any significant past medical history?

Following are the possibilities of the pain;

1) Lower abdominal muscle strain

2) Groin strain

3) Bursitis

Warm compresses, Ibuprofen, local analgesic cream and rest (no exertion or sporting activity) are likely to abate your symptoms.
