Was very, very tired one morning and went for a run anyway. Hips got achy, right more so than the left. Tired enough to cut the run short. Went home and slept. Ran more later (despite super achy hips). The next day could not run at all; took the day off. A day later, biked an hour, ran 6 miles off the bike. Kinda achy but managed it. Could not run the next day and had pain with hip flexion; lifting that foot to press the gas pedal in the car was painful.
4 months of biking and walking, thinking it was tendonitis; it was constantly achy around my groin and anterior hip, but did not have sharp pain. Had to wait 2 mo to see a specialist. Got an MRI; could not tell from that whether it was a fx, a small labral tear, or tendonitis. Doctor wanted to rule out a sfx so did a bone scan, which came back clean - meaning if there had been a fx, it was healed. They gave me a cortisone shot, which cleared it up --- so I definitely had tendonitis, and may have had a fx. Looking back on it with the type of pain I had, I suspect there was a stress reaction and tendonitis.
Like someone else said, groin pain = likely fx or tendonitis. Good luck.
