Any groin pain?: Any pain or limping with weight bearing/walking? Morning stiffness? If so consider hip joint problem. Consider labrum too. If groin muscles are sore perhaps a muscle strain. Bursitis of the lateral hip or gluteus medius/minimus muscle problem perhaps but you would have soreness of the lateral hip. Nerve issue can also cause weakness - look for numbness or tingling in other parts of the leg. ...Read more
