Cramping is another painful symptom that appears in many cases of a hip flexor strain. Cramping can occur when you try to move the affected muscles, but it may also occur during other moments of the day, even when you aren't physically active. Cramping can be felt in the hip flexor muscle group, especially in the front area near the groin. To ease the pain, try taking over-the-counter pain medication, including ibuprofen or naproxen. Remember to consult your doctor before using such medication. Some people should avoid certain medication, and never consume more than the recommended amount.
