    I think this maybe the right place to post this.

    Okay so I've been going to the gym and I always like to do an hour of cardio on the treadmill but then I started to get a pain in my groin area on the right side, every time I lifted it, it would hurt, like going up the stairs. I wasn't able to do the full 60 minutes on a treadmill or even do lunges on my right leg. It then went away so I got back up to doing the full 60 minutes on the treadmill and now it has come back. So what could be the problem? And is there anything to prevent it from happening?

    Thank you for any replies.

    Is it muscular or skeletal?

    If muscular that is across the joing, it is likely you have pulled a hip flexor. It could just be your running style (gait) being incorrect because of the treadmill. Have you got a decent pair of running shoes?

    Don't push through any pain, as you will only cause further injury. Stop and get it checked out, go and see your GP about it.

    Sounds like a hip flexor strain. I'm recovering from one atm. You will probably just need to rest it and do some regular gentle stretching to help it mend. Try the lunge stretch and see how it feels
