Rheumatologist told me groin pain indicates problem in the hips. Tell your gp. Could just be muscle problem but best to check. Good luck.

Hey there, i also have been suffering from groin pain abdominal pain back pain also so burning in the groin and anus. I have had alot of tests done including 2 MRIs 2 CT Scans colonascopys. And they can not come up with anything. I have a very small herniated discs at L4

L5. But the doc said its not from your back. Been diagnosed with IBS. but thats Abt it. So now after all this time and still feeling pain getting worse. There saying its in my head. I told them before i got sick i didnt even know what anxiety meant. But there telling me its from anxiety. So really im fucked. Cause there is no help. I am on gaba 1 3x. Aday. No change i hope to hear what you have to say after my story. Thanks


Hi Ben please try not to swear we have a variety of people and we do try not to offend any one. I know how hard it is at times. I too have groin pain they say it comes from lymphodema in my case. Hope it eases for you
