groin pain left side when sitting
HI,
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.

Definetely insist on an MRI...

Also, get checked out for inguinal hernias...they can sometimes show unusual pain symptoms. I know my father had severe sitting pain (groin) with his recent inguinal hernia.

Best wishes

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)

Let me know what you find....
