Cramps: Recurrent muscle cramps or spasms may be caused by deficiencies of calcium or magnesium. Sometimes they are due to excessive muscle tightness caused by various muscle activities during the day.

That is, something that affects your entire system, be it hormones, vitamins, nutritional, or neurological.

Groin pain: Pain in that area on hip movements can be due to an inguinal ligament or muscle strain or from hip joint arthritis or bursitis. A hernia can also occur in that region. Your physician can get a good idea of the cause by examination of the groin and by manipulations of the hip joint. ...Read more
