Possibly: Any deformity in the hip area is going to have direct impact to the knee and ankle and foot. You may want to get a second opinion from an osteopathic physician, can do musculoskeletal evaluation of your condition, and able to offer him treatment, that might also help the sins the strange sensations that you're getting in the ankle as well as the groin. There are fascial connections via the hip.

It's possible: Symptoms you have described are not typical of a hip etiology. This sounds more like a back problem--a mid to lower lumbar nerve root issue. Sounds like an evaluation with physical examination, x-rays, and possibly an MRI would give you some better information about the cause.
