Ok I have had periodic hip flexor tightness for a while now. Last week it got really bad and moved into my groin area on the right side after doing legs/lots of squats.
I took the rest of the week off of lower body stuff but I literally have pain with each step in my groin area on the right side, but I can feel the extreme tightness of the hip flexors on both sides.
I flipped out and got an X ray to make sure I didn't fracture anything, and all is good on that end so I know its not a fracture. But doing nothing isn't helping, only making them tighten up even more. I am stretching all the time, have gotten two massages, am foam rolling periodically, but I still have this slight groin pain when I try to squat.
I want to do lower body work next week, and am thinking it may be ok to push through a little pain since it may actually stretch them out and help them un-tighten? Am I fooling myself? Any other suggestions?
