Not to long now I've been getting excruciating groin pain when I'm in the car or lying in bed. Suddenly I get a spasm of pain in my right groin and I am unable to move at all or lift my leg in anyway was wondering if this has affected someone else and was looking for advise. I play a lot of football but this injury is new to me would be grateful for any responses
Agonising groin pain : Not to long now I've... - Pain Concern
Hi there, yes sorry to say this pain lead to me having a hip replacement, it might not be so serious for you, but its best to get it checked out with your GP, I left it too long thinking it would go away, as you sound quite young as you are playing football maybe all you need is a course of anti-inflamatories. I suffered for 10 years before getting it checked, and consequently I had done some damage by walking funny to compensate, still seeing a physio to try to correct my muscles. It could also be sciatica, I suffered with this following my op due to lying funny, Get it checked sooner than later Good Luck I hope its minor
It was as if by magic, the really bad pain had dissapeared, but initially it was replaced by the operation pain, which was controlled by pain killers, 6 weeks after the op i was getting around very easily without pain killers with a walking stick, my problem is strenghthening the muscles that have become wasted due to the length of time I was walking funny to compensate for the pain, still having physio but improving greatly, this was why I said don't delay as I did, the hip replacement was a big op but worth it, out of hospital in five days.getting around on crutches, best of luck see your GP.
I had agonising spasms like this, where I could see those muscles actually clenching + moving, but nothing relieved the pain. I didn't do anything as active as football, just cycling & hill-walking, which had to stop. Eventually I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondilitis which was starting to rot that hip joint. Anti-inflammatories plus a hip replacement unlocked those cruel spasms and gave me a wonderful life. The spasms never returned. So get checked out for Ankylosing Spondilitis : yours may never be as severe as mine was .
Have a word with your gp, but if can't help, do you know a good chiropractor? As it sounds like the pain i get.
I get it because i have fallen arches and it makes your body twist. I have to get everything reset monthly as i have hypermobility (double jointed) and dislocate my hip easily.
Hope you get sorted out soon, take care and angel blessings
