You: You need to have a complete medical evaluation as to the cause of your pain. If you are having severe hip and shoulder pain, the problem could be from within the joint, such as arthritis, or it could be from radiated nerve pain from your spine. Plain x-rays would show arthritis, but an MRI is needed to identify a bulging disc that is causing nerve pain. Please be seen again so that you can be appropriately treated.

I have a sharp, dull pain deep in my groin/hip. Almost feels like a pinched nerve. It comes and goes periodically. What could it be caused by?

Muscle strain: Depends on what you do. This could be a muscle strain if you are very athletic. Need to be evaluated by a doc if this persist. If it comes and go, then it is unlikely to be a nerve issue. The more active, the greater the possiblity of a muscular issue such as a groin strain. See your doc if it persists.

Uncertain: This could be a muscle pull. There could be other issues such as joint, bone, tendons, bursa and you do have medical conditions that also could be related to this problem. I would try simple therapy such as heat or cold and see if that gives you relief. You need to see your physician and get this fully evaluated.
