What would cause a pinching feeling in my groin when I sit down? It is just to the side of my pubic bone near the top of the bone and top of thigh too

In brief: Pinched

This positional symptom is a pinched superficial nerve, ligament or muscle which apparently only occurs when you're sitting.
An inguinal hernia is another possibility especially if you note a bulging in the groin. A physician or surgeon could check you for a hernia and also manipulate your leg in order to reproduce the pinching sensation.
