Been having a slight pain in my left groin, near the hip flexor, extending down to knee. It feels as though it might be tendon related because it seems to somewhat wrap around my knee. It does not affect training too much, I just need to get it warmed up more than the rest of my body. It is only uncomfortable but in my first few reps of a deep squat and certain stretches that place it in an unusual range of motion like the butterfly stretch. Thanks for the advice.

"Sartorius Strain and Tears

Sartorius strains are usually mild but present with a persistent disability that is often seen with activities requiring excessive and unaccustomed "squatting" or rowing positions. The associated discomfort is aggravated by abduction and extension of the thigh, and eased after a mild warm-up."

could also be a hernia, the pain wraping down to the knee although unusual could be refered pain.
see if you can feel a lump and whether you can put it back(reduce)or not.
but most likely not, i'd put my money on what andy has said. if its still persisting by now i'd get it checked out.

I've had my sartorious cramp up, after a particularly nasty scrummaging session a while back. I could not for the life of me remember where the damn insertions were, so I could figure out how to stretch it out. That was fun. Trial and error finally got it stopped.
