I have groin pain left side when sitting. I have seen many doctors including 3 pain clinics with negative results. X-rays and CT-scans show nothing. Injections in the area also no help.
I have no pain when standing, only when sitting down and it gets worse the longer that I sit.
Do you think surgery is the next step?
No. Without some idea of what they're looking for, I doubt any surgeon will touch you for fear of doing more harm than good. Have you seen a neurologist? It sounds like nerve pain, and the may be originating from something in your lower back. An MRI would be better at detecting something wrong in your spine area.
Sounds like I have the exact same problem, but on the right side. The MRI detected an inquinal mass that "could be" a hernia. But I am not showing a hernia in any other way. I am going to try to exercise more and maybe do acupuncture. (and obviously sit less)
