Sore in groin area think it is Swollen painful lymph nodes

I woke up on Monday morning with a sharp pain in my inside groin and it is still happening. I think it may be swollen lymph nodes but are painful to touch. I am also experiencing sharp pains in my legs. I was drinking alcohol all day Sunday and picked up a slight cold so could this all be related? Has anyone experienced this before?

It's probably not related to your cold - your glands would be swollen in your neck, not your groin.

Did you happen to pull any muscles? Fall?

Are you hydrated? Alcohol is very dehydrating. Make sure you are drinking enough water, and lay off the alcohol and caffeine.

Since it's been lingering for a few days, you should probably get it checked. Let your doctor know if you've had any possible exposures to STDs, or if you have any pain with urination, defecation, etc.

Let us know what happens, and hope you feel better soon. :)

No exposure to STD’s so can rule that out. It’s actually more painful behind the pubic line to the left hand side. Am I right In saying that’s where the  prostate is could it be something to do with that?

Yes, it could be the prostate, or a UTI, or a hernia, even. Really, anything along those lines.

You really need to see a doctor to figure it out, since it could be so many different things. Let us know what happens. I'll be interested to hear what this is.

Feel better :)
