In brief: Musculoskeletal

Pain in hip, groin & anterior thigh in fiftyish female might be a sciatica variant.
Sciatica is a pain pattern with different causes. Lumbar impingement of sciatic nerve roots characteristically causes radiation down buttock. Sacroiliac joint (sij) hypermobility characteristically causes radiation to groin. Fluoroscopic guided diagnostic block of sij can be diagnostic. See physiatrist.
