  • I have pain which runs from my groin, across my hip and down to my ankle and have been told that it is due to osteoarthritis in my hip which in turn is pressing on my sciatic nerve. It could be that you have the same problem. I know how painful it is, especially at night.

  • Hi .. yes it is worse at night ....had x rays recons ostioporosis thinning of the bones ... but will see once i have a dexa mother has tbe same but understandably she is 84 ...I'm 52 and said to dr was he sure yes it is very painful. .I'm now trying naproxen and Co codamol . Thank you and I hope you get some relief soon x

  • I've had pain in my groin for many years, even before getting RA. All stemmed from connective tissue weakness / damage. After aqua physio, I was left to my own devices with just a generic exercise leaflet. No good to me. It took me a long time, but I now have a tailor made exercise program designed to strengthen the legs, bum and core muscles. This is very useful and of general benefit, because it's something that's become second nature, a pleasure not a chore. I still get groin pain, but in no way as strong as it was and it's getting less and less. All the very best. I hope you find something that'll give you relieve.

  • It's such a horrible disease for us all .... here's to a pain free haha new year ...I can wish xx

  • OK thought I'd give you update on hip /groun ...had more tests and been told it's ostioporosis. ...Dr tells me this is a silent disease and yoy get no pain with ostioporosis. ..I replied with "who told you that lie" and hope in the future if he got it he'd be sayin the same then...oh well more tablets to join the rest ...hope everyone is havin a pain free day ..
