I have been diagnosed with an inflamed tendon in my groin. I also am having a fever at night/early morning (101). Goes away during the day? Normal?

Not normal!: A tendon issue would not normally result in a fever. I believe the diagnosis needs to be re-evaluated. You need to be examined for enlarged lymph nodes and likely need some blood testing. You may also need a CT scan in the area of concern.
