Granted other things could cause this edema, but obesity is one possible cause. Losing weight will obviously help.See 1 more doctor answer

Groin pain since oct 2013. Doctors did CT scan & blood test and said I was normal/no hernia. Nerve pain/shocks in my legs still since feb 2014. Cause?
Hip a possibility: First, its very difficult to tell without a physical examination and review of your imaging. Arthritis in your hips can often present as groin pain. Hip arthritis would be exacerbated by certain exercise as well. Compression of your lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can also cause nerve pain/shocks. Its not very common though to be bilateral.
