My symptoms seem exactly the same as yours to infinity and beyond.
Currently able to run through the discomfort but the following day my painful right hip and groin certainly restrict my movement. A further 24-48 hours later and it has cleared up until I run again.
I previously suffered with a tight IT band on my right leg, which was sorted by one physio visit and following some stretching exercises, all relatively quickly.
I think my problem is possibly associated with a back injury I suffered a few years ago (slipped disk L3/L4). When I started exercising and running last March/April I started using a personal trainer to work on strengthening my core. This did wonders for my back and I went months without any back pain (unless I did something stupid). I stopped using the personal training at the end if October and in all honesty my core exercises have ceased since. These problems started during December, previous to this my hip/groin were pain free.
I'm going to start working on my core and get back to my personal trainer in March, in the hope that my problem will clear up.
