Hip pain: Sounds like sciatica--a pinched nerve that is caused by a bulging or herniated disc, that refers pain down the leg in a specific distribution. Also consider hip arthritis if groin pain is an issue. Check x-rays of hip and pelvis.

Pain that stops at the knee suggests hip problem like arthritis. Especially if pain made worse when getting up from standing or with weight bearing. Pain past the knee suggests sciatica or a pinched nerve pain.
