Lower abdominal and groin discomfort

Posted , 9 users are following.

I been having mild aches and pains and discomfort mostly on the lower side from below the belly button, the bladder area, down to the groin.

It started after taking Nexium for my problem with acid reflux.

The feelings come and go, from very mild to a feeling that there is something there, especially when sitting down or crissing feet or legs when sitting.

Sometimes it feels like it's under the skin with mild itchy burning feelings.

No poop problem, no urine problem, I urinate a lot if I drink too much water. No mass or swelling or rash.

I had a similar experience last year, urine test normal.

Only been to the doctor last week, for another issue, the similar feeling was in my back and leg.

GP said my muscles were tight, probably due to my anxiety, as I suffer from generalised anxiety, health anxiety and mild depression.

Is this common among anxiety and stress? Or even acid reflux/GERD?

Is there something at home I can try doing to rid of this? Or does it need being rechecked again?
