FEMORAL NERVE - 65 YEAR OLD FEMALE

RIGHT GROIN PAIN, WHEN STANDING OR WALKING FOR AN HOUR OR MORE.

Hello Donnette,
Prod around in your groin, comparing with the other side. Tender? Lumps or bumps?

Now pull your knee to your chest, and opposite shoulder. Stiff? Difficulty cutting toenails, putting on socks?

Ask someone to stand behind you, and place their hands on your iliac crests (top of the pelvis). Is one side distinctly lower than the other? A short leg causes standing pain.

You make no mention of back pain, but bend this way and that. Does it hurt anywhere? Very stiff?

There are many possible causes, not just a Femoral nerve radiation. I'd get some X-rays of your pelvis first (taken standing to check for a short leg) and if nothing found then your lumbar spine.
I hope this contributes.
