Your symptoms sound like an irritation of the urethra, I would suggest cranberry juice to relieve you irritation and increase your water intake. Follow up with your PCP or urologist for help. I doubt this is related to IBS or celiac disease.

I recently had epidural steroid injection and I have a burning pain in groin. Is this normal?

Yes: Within reason. The injection itself may initially irritate the tissues around the nerve and the nerve itself. Especially if you had what is called a transforaminal injection. It sounds as if your injection was given around the 3rd lumbar nerve, right ?

A 40-year-old member asked:
I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Not Usually: Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately. Sometimes, there is still some swelling in the ureter that could be giving continued pain or even possible a small stone fragment. I would check with your doctor with the pain persisting that long.

I had oral sex for the first time with a very experienced guy and now I have a sore throat could I have gonorrhea?

Depends : The timing is crucial here. Is the sore throat immediate? Next day? Condoms? Rough or gentle oral sex? Most likely it's not gonorrhea. But it is best to be safe. Did the guy ever have gc? Did he have other std's? If so, you should be checked.
