Beginning in December on an airlight flight I began having groin pain. A deep pain like it was being squeezed, but it was not painful to touch. The pain was intermittent coming off and on depending on how I moved or sat (also had right lower stomach pain and back pain. As the pain became worse, about 2 months ago I went to my family doctor who did blood tests, urine tests, MRI, and an ultrasound. They found that I have bone deficiency on the border and have began taking calcum treatment; but could find no reason for the pain. The doctor said he felt it was probably a strain and that if this didn't work he'd refer me to a surgeon for exploratory. It has been well over a month since then and the pain has increased to an extreme constant pain. I cannot see what exploratory surgery will do when there were no results to the test. HELP - where do I go from here?
Causes for groin pain include a hernia, prostatitis, scrotal infections (if you are a male), as well as gynecological causes (i.e. fibroids, cysts) if you are female.
You noted that an ultrasound and MRI were negative. If you are male, I would consider tests for prostatitis (i.e. digital rectal exam with culture of the prostatic fluid) as well as a scrotal ultrasound to evaluate the anatomy of the scrotum and look for epididymitis.
If you are female, a referral to a gynecologist can be considered for further evaluation.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
