In no particular order

Fractured wrist in 3 places on my 30th birthday (nurses at the ER loved that)
Bent elbow about 45 degrees the wrong way still can't throw a baseball hard or it will come out again (it has).
4 cracked ribs (not in the same crash) multiple others unconfirmed.
Tailbone fracture twice.
Dislocated shoulder.
Whiplash and concussions multiple times (usually in the same hit).
Boxers fracture of right hand (actually happened twice the first wasn't from snowboarding, broke the cast and re-broke it snowboarding).
Broke pinky finger.
Possible current partially torn rotator cuff.
Countless sprains, pulls and ice rash

I'm probably forgetting something.

Bruised vertebrae, concussion, broken ribs, chipped patella (knee cap), chipped tooth (knee to the jaw scotty lago style, not nearly as gnarly though), countless shoulder sprains, bruised shins, bruised ass, and my wrist might currently be fractured.

Wow, I have clearly not been getting gnarly enough.

Torn MCL and miniscus grade 2 tear, re-tore my labrum in my shoulder half through, dislocated thumb and was mis-diagnosed through physio & took a year to heal, injured my tail bone to the point of not being able to sit for three weeks, caught an edge and strained my neck muscles which was really owie.

Sprained ankle years ago on my first run EVER! out for weeks. Fell about 5 weeks ago at 25MPH plus off a 12 foot drop onto my right shoulder. Whatever I did, it was as close to dislocation as possible. I have to immobilize my arm with the other one just to get back to the bottom. Landed on the front of my neck once and couldn't breathe very well for several days. other than that, just bumps and bruises of various degrees.

Funny that we all keep coming right back to it.

I have owned my board for 4 years. I got on it once back when I bought it and aggravated a preexisting, nagging shoulder problem (multiple subluxations) by falling on my outstretched arm. For various reasons, I didn't board again until this winter. My first day on it, I was at the point of shakily linking turns, but kept catching my heel edge. One such time I whacked my head on snow nice and hard, mildly concussing myself.

Pretty rough start for me, but my second time out this year I took a lesson and it helped a ton! After 4 days this season, I'm now breezing down the greens and haven't caught my edge since. On to the blues next time I'm out, I think.

This is what I got at the moment.
Has anyone experienced an injury with about these symptoms?

It started about a year ago, after one week very intense snowboarding trip (about 8hours a day). I also did fall once a bit bad to my left hip & buttock which most likely caused this. Still I was able to continue riding after falling still for few days. The pain got stronger about a week after the trip.

Dull pain (not sharp) on outer thigh, hip. Also inside of the thigh might be a bit sharper.
Also I've had this weird tingling sensation often in my Ankle (which is odd, maybe somekind of nerve)

Now when riding I have to be quite careful with buttering, jumping or twisting (shifties on air). The outer thigh/hip gets quite easily worked up and aches more.

This ache / painstate is pretty much constant in normal life.

At the beginning: (about a year ago)

it was more intense pain, I couldn't lift leg up too much as pain in thigh prevented this, also stretching leg outwards was quite painful.
I visited physiotherapist 5 times, wasn't much lasting help.
X-Ray and ultrasound have been taken both seemed fine. No MRI taken.

Physios don't seem so concerned as the pain doesn't agitate too much when they try moving my leg. It's more of a dull pain. In worst case scenario it's hip labrum tear, but I'd like to believe no.

I've came to conclusion it's probably somehow chronical pain.
Today I found article about Hip Flexor injury which it could be. Apparently it has a high possibility to become chronical.
Has anyone any experience of such injury and could say how does that feel?

I didn't sustain any injuries during my first year, but my second year brought about a dislocated shoulder courtesy of some fog and a well-hidden bump that launched me a few dozen feet with a triple cartwheel to finish things off.

Besides that, nothing major, just a few ass bruises from falling on ice, a lot of painful wrists, and a sizable dent on the helmet from a whiplash-type head hit from a caught edge that left my ears ringing for a good 5 minutes.
