Hi Everyone,

I have hip impingement and arthritis..lately I have been getting an intermittent sharp pain in the inner groin, strangely only when going down a slope..never happens at any other time.

My question is, is it normal to get sharp pains in this area just from hip arthritis ?

Thank you

    The short answer is yes. The groin is a classic place in which to experience pain from an arthritic hip. I remember it all too well :roll:

    Yes, it's a classic symptom of hip OA. DD
