I started feeling pain in the upper thigh at top in the crease between vagina and thigh in the crease . The pain is severe when I pick up my right foot to walk. The muscle burns and hurts unless I shuffle my feet

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The vagina is an inner canal (inside the body, that leads from the cervix down to the outer genitalia . I'm not sure you mean "vagina". ).

It sounds to me like you may have groin strain. The groin muscle belongs to a group of muscles, running through the inside of the thigh called the adductor muscles. This set of six muscles connects the inside of the pelvis to the thigh bone, or femur. When the groin muscle is strained it has most likely been overexerted and/or stretched too far. This injury can range from a slight pull to the ultimate tearing of muscle fibers. A relatively strong muscle, the groin, is rarely torn entirely but minor pulls are a common occurrence.

Symptoms of the injury include varying levels of discomfort in the effected area, limited hip and leg function, as well as swelling and spasming of the muscle in severe cases.

The best way to treat a groin injury is rest. Activity that aggravates the muscle puts it at risk for additional injury. Pain is a good indicator of what can and can not be done during the recovery process. Other treatments to an injured groin are:

Stretching: Dependent on your level of agility, lightly stretching the muscle will be helpful to your recovery but over stretching can delay it as well;

Ice: To reduce inflammation and swelling. Immediately after the injury occurs ice should be applied to avoid these symptoms.

During recovery, after mild activity, ice should be applied again. Icing aggravated muscles also sends blood to the effected area, creating an environment of healing for the effected muscle; and

Heat: Help loosen the muscle by applying a heat pack to the groin muscle area. This may be beneficial to do before stretching and any sort of activity where the muscle may be re-injured.

Still, rest is the most important part of your recovery time. You must let the muscle heal before risking an aggravation.

Stretching before and after exercise can be vital in your overall muscle health and injury prevention. To avoid groin muscles in particular, adductor muscle stretches, hip and pelvic exercises and a strong core can all contribute to the prevention of a muscle strain.

Anon, if you don't believe you have a strained groin (and you may not, we can only offer possibilities) you need an examination - you may have a different kind of problem, including something with your reproductive system. Please consult your doctor.

I hope this has helped-
