This is Dr. David

you could have a pulled or strained groin muscle in your thigh

this muscle is often strained or pulled if you do not stretch it frequently and if you do heavy lifting suddenly without warming up.

sometimes with your body weight, if your groin muscle is weak, you can strain it with just activities of daily living.

are you male? you could also have an early inguinal hernia possibly or a small kidney stone.

have you ever done groin muscle stretches before?

how old are you?

are you male or female?
