A rare finding for someone who is 36, but usually if it does not respond to gentle stretching and anti-inflammatories if able to take them, then seek expertise. ...Read more
What else other than rice and vicodin can I do for a pulled groin muscle. The vicodin never really knocks the pain out?
Anti-inflammatories: The best way to treat pulled muscle is by rest and gentle stretch.

If you don't have a history of gastritis or bleeding from the stomach, you can take these medications generously, i.E 2-3 200 mg tablets, at least 2 times a day for 4-5 days. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Hard to say without: Knowing more specifics as in how severe the "pull" was. But in general even for mild strains, resting for 2 weeks isn't unreasonable with a graded(slow increase) reintroduction into exercise after that. Listen to your body, if you're not a professional athlete, "no pain, no gain" really doesn't apply to you. If it hurts, decrease the intensity or just avoid it all together and retry later. ...Read more
Osteitis pubis: Osteitis pubis is a central ache directly over the junction of the pubic bones. It can be very difficult to distinguish this from a groin pull as the groin muscles attach on the pubic bone. Stress fractures can also mimic osteitis pubis. These are seen more commonly in runners.

Switch doctor: Regardless of your age and of your Gyn, sexual or obstetrical history...you should expect your Gyn exam, speculum exam or Pap test to be done skillfully and to cause you no pain. Since you felt that "when she did exam it hurt a lot", it would be wise to "switch" and to seek a more caring and more experienced clinician (doctor, Gyn, nurse-practitioner...) to check on your groin pain. ...Read more
