Right diagnosis?: All of the things you list about your spine MRI are common for certain age groups. You mention no pain in the legs or what makes the pain worse. Groin pain can be more suspect for hip problems or referred pain from the pelvic organs and even the si joints. If you have not seen a specialist about your issue, now is the time. Pt is always a good first step in managing any musculoskeletal problem.
