Around 15 years ago as I was stepping out of the tube my foot slid causing me to do the splits. I had severe pain in my right inner thigh/groin area. Since then I haven't been able to lift my right leg without severe pain. (example) Lifting my leg to place it on my motorcycle peg. Recently the same severe pain has returned and never leaves. It has gotten to the point to where I can hardly get up and down. Please help.

Your condition appears to be a musculoskeletal disorder, most likely a sprain of the ankle .

It would be best that you consult a doctor and get a physical examination.

Application of Ice, rest, use of proper splints (supports) and if needed pain killers can help in reducing your symptoms in the mean time.

I hope this helps.
