Red hot poker in groin/hip!

Hi all

Ive had a pain that started in my left hip 6months ago it was just uncomfortable to lye on my side...over the months the pain has got to constant severe pain which i can only describe as having a red hot poker pressed into my groin/back/hip not all at once ...can change patterns..but constant feeling of "pressure" worse when lying down..hence sleepless nights..had x ray on hip...all clear...currently being treated for sus diverticulitis...antibiotics making it worse! I have suggested it may be endo to one of the many docs ive seen but seems to fall on deaf ears....im so down and tired..does anyone else have these symptoms..off to pop yet more codiene

I had this problem for 6 months ive had ct, mri, antibiotics for diverticulitus, xrays, colonoscopy and it turned out after my dr gave me a course of phyios i had a tight pelvic floor and burstitus of the hip...

To me it felt internal.

So maybe take a root that it is ur hip not ur insides


Thanks for your reply..just finished antibiotics..still in pain...in lower groin hip back so off to docs next tues i'll mention your condition ...fingers crossed it will finaly get sorted


Hi i also have been suffering constant pain in left side its in upper groin and hip and goes into lower groin as well..had this for a yr now and had scans ect ..still in constant pain..get sick of going to the doctors as i think they think im a hypocondriact!my periods are getting erratic im now on day 40 still no period and he pain is hurrendous..i also was given anti biotics for suspected diverticulitus .which made me really ill... cant sleep on my left side either..sleepless nights i too..i mention endo just gets ignored how are you? Any answers


As i wrote 6 months ago alot has changed so i had loadsa test ie for endo and colon and ibs.

Well i have got ibs but i also have a pelvic floor and psoas problem all in hip.

They did xray of hip and showed alot of wear and tear and my psoas was inflammed.

All aparently can lead to the same symptoms as endo or ibs..

So i started to see a womens health physio who explained all them muscles are on top of each other on ur hip groin area and when one inflames they all do. My periods have got better my hips got better and my stomach and ibs pain have got better ???

So sometimes it is muscular pain


Thanx for replying back..yes sorry ive kind of repeated myself there! Im currently on amitripyline m20mg since last week it does help a bit with sleep but still left with the on going pain i'll give it a dew weeks as it can take time to give maximum benefits...i tried a chiropracter who suspected a muscle in my flank area was the cause but its worse than ever since his treatment..fingers crossed ey? Glad to hear your alot better😊 best wishes
