    Hi Micheala, I haven't suffered with this symptom myself, but just wanted to say I hope it's not too uncomfortable for you.  Diann

     Micheala, I would go and get the doc to check it out for sure.You know the risks with LS.  Might not be connected with the LS, but might, and if so then the sooner you go the better.  Why wait and worry when you can do it now. xx

    I agree you should see the doctor. Are you sure it's lymph nodes? Boils/cysts in the groin are one of the 'benefits' LS has shared with me. It's bad skin we have. A wayward hair can poke the skin and trigger an infection. Twelve years ago I had a lump among my pubes and agonized for days about having cancer. I went to my gynae and it was just a cyst. No diagnosis of LS, thanks very much, though. Eleven years later someone finally diagnosed me.

    normally an indication of an infection in the area- could be bowel bladder uterus  etc etc Off to the doctor to get it checked out - you may need to give a urine sample - if you get pain in your back  make the apt. sooner than later - it could be kidney and THAT is uncomfortable!

    Do you have other pain anywhere?

    Good Luck

    Hi Michaela

    I have had sharp stabbing pain in the groin area this week. I was on a long walk in a glorious French forest, looking for mushrooms!  I literally could not walk for a while and had to contine very, very slowly back to the car.  I decided it was a stitch and managed to put it out of my mind until yesterday, when I had pain again after a long bout of standing up ironing!  Have decided to see my gp when I return, as I read that it can be related to LS or kidneys!  Let me know how you get on please.  Wen

      Much more likely to be hip related - Do you have any arthritis? Or there is a condition called bursitis that is self limitimg - steroid injections can take the pain away  if it is that - 

      If the kidneys were involved the pain would much more likely be in your loin / back. Is your urine infected? Hope it goes soon cos it is another THING to  have to get sorted ...What fun getting older is!

      Take care

      If it is bursitis as Sue suggested, then matters get worse with being inactive.  I had an arm that way.  The best thing for bursitis is to keep moving.  I started to avoid using the arm, which was the wrong thing to do. Then I fall out of a tree, while pruning and standing on a ladder.  Held the tree with my sore arm, the arm got twisted, very painful, The arm came 'loose' from being stuck by the bursitis. The arm healed fast and the bursitis has not come back since.  (I don't mean you have to do crazy things like falling out of a tree)(ha, ha)  But first better see a doctor.  All of us here can only talk of personal experiences.
