Hi and welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am very sorry to hear about your back and groin pain.

I am not a physician. In my opinion hip and groin pain can often "go together." Often hip pain can present as groin pain, called referred pain. It is usually muscle related.

Sometimes when the back and hip are painful in unison it can also be related to pelvic balance. Muscles and ligament become strained. and in combination this can create your groin and lower back pain. But again I am not an expert.

If you have been off work I assume you have seen your PCP. Have you seen a D.O., Doctor of Osteopathy? Osteopathic medicine is one of the fastest growing health-care professions in the U.S. They are educated and trained just as an MD. However they receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system-your body's interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones that make up two-thirds of your body mass. This training provides osteopathic physicians with a better understanding of the ways that an illness or injury in one part of your body can affect another.

Obviously I see a (Internal Medicine) DO, she is my PCP. If it were not for her osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) and care I would not function. She, as most DO's can is able to "feel" painful areas with just a touch. I have been seeing her for 5 years and her ability still amazes me. You may want to consider a consult with a DO. They usually can be found in any clinic. Not all DO's continue their skill in OMT, you may want to ask before you make the appointment.  

Don't give up. If your PCP is not helping your condition make another appt and discuss this with him/her. If he is not willing to find answers for you it may be time to look for another PCP.

Good luck to you. Please let us know how you are doing. We are here to support you. Take Care, Tuck
