inner thigh ROM issue

When lying on my back, knees bent, feet flat on floor, my right leg hurts when I allow the knee to drop toward the floor, away from my body, limiting my range of motion. I experience a sharp pain at the very top of my inner thigh (seems like where a muscle attaches to bone) and simultaneously at the center(ish) of my knee above the kneecap. I also have shin pain on my right leg that has lasted 3 weeks without much relief. I had been running about 40 miles per week (marathon training), but am taking a break to let my shin heal. My right leg in general doesn't feel great after about 6 or 7 miles. My left leg has no issues. I also have occasional hip "locking" after sitting for a long time. I've seen a PT who thinks it may be a labreal tear or nerve impingement. Also, I was diagnosed with a minor inguinal hernia 3 years ago and have not been bothered by it really...unless that's what's causing these problems. Is that possible? Any other opinions before I make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon??

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
