Dear Ms. Dabbs, Tens of diseases can cause groin pain, including fracture, joint inflammation,sciatica... The information you've provided is limited. We'll recommend you to visit your doctor, take physical exam and do some tests if necessary. In case it takes time, you may visit the online symptom checker, choose the symptoms that fit, and then you will be able to know what type of disease most matches your symptoms. http://healthtopquestions.com/symptom-checker-step-1/ All the best.

I feel your pain. I'm sorry you r going thru this . You have a pinched nerve in your back. Get a MRI done of your lower back Many Blessings. Marcykay.
It may be the ligament or femur, recommend you to see an orthopedist.
did you know something as simple as low potassium  can cause this...i know because i am going through this right now. It can cause heart flutter, hip/groin pain,foot pain , back pain, leg pain , feeling off, etc......and i am only mildly low....my dr tested my electrolytes and it was 3.2 and he told me to start eating potassium foods so i started drinking low sodium v8, coconut water, baked potatoes, bananas, canteloupe, etc all things with high potassium and slowly it is getting better.....i also started taking slow mag avail at walmart as well and d3. what can cause this...elevated b12, or avoiding foods with potassium because of high carbs , too high d3, taking sulfur things like msm, etc....
How do I get relief?

After sitting it is very painful to straighten leg to stand up.  Once I’m up it no longer hurts
Do you feel pain when you raise your leg? Do you have pain when you walk a lot? You are suggested to do a spine MRI to exclude lumbar disc herniation first.
you definitely need to get your potassium checked  ( electrolytes) and your d3 , and b12....even a mild deficiency can cause terrible problems , pain etc.......my potassium dipped to 3.2 and all kinds of things started happening
