Severe groin pain

Posted , 74 users are following.

Hi.. My sister is experiencing severe pain in her left groin area. She is in tears every night and no one seems to be able to help. She was in hospital for a week and underwent a MRI, CAT scan etc and still nothing. They say they can't find anything. It is constant in her left side. It used to go down her left leg also but not so much now. She says it feels like her inside are being pulled apart and when the pain eases her left side feels heavy. She has had a massage machine to see if it is muscle related with still no success. It started before Christmas 2012 and had stayed getting worse and worse. She can't take anymore. Can anybody help us???

    Gemma,

    Did your sister ever find an answer or relief? 

    I am in the same boat. 

    30-year-old.  pain in (right) groin since July 2013.  Sometimes pain radiates down to knee.  Sometimes radiates up through abdomen,

    Lumbar MRI revealed nothing special.  Tried perscription anti-inflammatories.  Tried physio.  Acupuncture.  Had ultrasounds of pelvis and abdomen.   Had endoscopy down throat.   Bloodwork.   All clear.

    Am now waiting on an abdominal/pelvic CT scan

    Am tired of being in such intense pain with little to no relief. 

    I have yet to meet someone who knows what I am talking about/has an idea/can offer a solution.  I have seen my GP, a physiotherapist, a vascular doc, a neurologist, and a gastro doc...

    What was your sister's outcome/what has her journey been like since?

    All the Best,

    -Dora.

      Not that I have noticed.

      Is the only way to diagnose endo via a laproscopic exploratory surgery?

      I keep thinking it is a femoral hernia (incredibly difficult to diagnose in women).

      Chronically not feeling well/being in pain is causing me to be anxious and stressed, which in turn feeds the pain.   

      It's difficult to know where to go next.

      I think if it was endo. you would know that it involves the uterine area in rhythm to your cycle.  I hope you find the answer.  I have chronic pain from a variety of problems - it is just maddening and sad.  I feel like there is a normal active gal in me, who is not allowed her freedom.

      Hi Lorie,

           I have had sciatica and the pain usually runs from the hip down the legs and is really intense, like you can't be still intense because your always trying to get comfortable and get in a position where the pain will stop. Sciatica will usually feel somewhat better after resting it for some time one time it took me about 4-6 weeks before I felt half way human again but now I usually do pretty good unless Ihave to drive a great distance.

      I don't know... My pain has gone on for way over almost 2 years. my problem is that I try to do the menial things Ivery always done but after I do I pay for days. I don't have any muscle strength and everyone is fussing at me bc I lean aND walk even leaning to my right?! Now....explain that? I just can't mentally handle the everyday pain. I have suffered with depression long before I knew it

      I have had this pain for so long now from my waist to my groin down both of my legs to my knees the Doctor thinks it's from my hips I think it's is as well. It is extremely painful most of the time. I'm starting physical therapy not sure if it can help I think I may need hip replacement surgery, but it scares me and I'm afraid it might not even help I'm in bad shape to much pain

      I had pain in my hip and groin area, that went down to my knee so bad i rated the pain as 12 on a scale from 1 to 10. Physical therapy helped me. I still have pain but it is not as bad.

      I'm in the same boat, to the extent I was supposed to have a cushion put in between my hip joint when we drove 21/2 hours away they did not do the surgery intended instead they did an exploratory it comes and goes like a Butcher knife in my right groin this time it went from last Thursday till yesterday March 5th 2017 I never know when it's going to start although immediately I get extremely I'll like flu which has also been going on for years, I hope you and I and all suffering from this find out exactly what it is, I did find out I have bursitis in my right hip. I know my bones cannot handle cool or cold weather I thank God I'm in Florida now thanks for being on here, Suzanne Eigner

       I have had x-rays, variety of those, nothing is found. I have been examined by a multitude of doctors and treated by a multitude of doctors with no results. My next step is acupuncture which I am seriously considering scheduling soon
