Burning sensation in right groin/thigh a few minutes after ejaculation. Sounds like prostatitis. Does herpes cause this or sound like a possible cause?

Burning sensation in right groin/thigh a few minutes after ejaculation. Sounds like prostatitis. Does herpes cause this or sound like a possible cause?

Many causes: Your pain could represent many things. Your vas deferens transports sperm from your testicles via your groin. You may have a hernia if there is a bulge present. Prostatitis is usually accompanied by fever, pelvic/rectal pain or pain when you urinate. A burning sensation on your thigh is usually a result of a nerve problem. I would recommend a physical exam to assess your problem.

Burning Sensation (Definition)

A burning sensation can be descriptive of nerve pain, some variations of migraine, and even central brain problems after a stroke. Have heard this said associated with phantom limb syndrome, reflex sympatheric dystrophy, and trigeminal neuralgia. Other patients might say ...Read more

Getting a burning sensation that turns into numbness! Starts in groin area and moves to inner thigh always on right side. Is this sciatica?

Getting a burning sensation that turns into numbness! Starts in groin area and moves to inner thigh always on right side. Is this sciatica?

Not exactly: Classically siatica goes from buttocks to leg down the back this may be nerve compression but a different nerve root from your description sounds like L3 or L4 or other peripheral nerves femoral obturator, siatica feels like this but in different part of leg classically

Inner thigh burning sensation. Seems to be traveling around the left hip a bit (sometimes lateral, other times adductor or groin). Any thoughts?

Inner thigh burning sensation. Seems to be traveling around the left hip a bit (sometimes lateral, other times adductor or groin). Any thoughts?

Nerve: Several superficial cutaneous nerves in the thigh. The pattern suggests a nerve being injured. Would give it time to heal.

Pain/numbness in right leg from buttock all the way down to big toe and numbness/burning sensation in groin? Can't stand on heels either or tip toes

Pain/numbness in right leg from buttock all the way down to big toe and numbness/burning sensation in groin? Can't stand on heels either or tip toes

Possibly a sciatica: A sciatica is caused by an irritation of a nerve in the back that then can cause pain that runs down the leg like you are describing. There are also potentially other causes as well. Usually a detailed history and exam can determine the cause. Thank you for your question.

I seem to have burning sensation on my leg and groin area? What can it be?

A few choices: Jock itch; muscle strain; pinched nerve...As top of list. You should discuss this with your dr for full history and physical exam to find source.

What could cause constant pain in the inguinal region and tenderness around the lymph nodes, along with a burning sensation midway down the right leg?

What could cause constant pain in the inguinal region and tenderness around the lymph nodes, along with a burning sensation midway down the right leg?

Several things: Burning is usually a sign of local inflammation of tissues or pain resulting from nerve injury/inflammation. Causes of all your symptoms could include infection (could be serious), inflammation of peripheral nerves (ex. Femoral, genitofemoral, obturator, saphenous), blood vessel inflammation/infection, etc. Serious enough, esp. W/fever, to warrant visit to dr. ASAP.

Thigh sprain!: This sounds like a pulled muscle. Try gentle stretching, light activity, heat, and anti-inflammatories. Don't get discooutraged, this may take a while. If it gets worse, doesn't improve, radiates down the leg, or is accompanied by weakness or numbness, she should be seen.

Back/Pelvic Eval: I recommend a more comprehensive evaluation by a physiatrist/sports medicine or orthopedic specialist. The lower back and pelvic region is complex and there are multiple sources for that type of pain/symptoms and a thorough history and physical exam is needed to assist you.

Does a herniation cause you not to be able to sit at all or lay on your back. Burning pain and pain in other parts like hips, groin, sensitive thighs?

Does a herniation cause you not to be able to sit at all or lay on your back. Burning pain and pain in other parts like hips, groin, sensitive thighs?

Possibly: It does sound like you might be very sensitive and/or that it might be a major tear. Seek advice from your Dr re possible corrective surgery and perhaps a good PT program once the healing can tolerate strengthening. Try to be patient. Try to find cold/heat/support solutions to pain to avoid opioid risks - but some safe pain meds might help.

Have burning pain in groin and inner and front of thighs. Pain on right side of low back, pelvis. What could this be? Pulled muscle pressing a nerve?

Nerve Pain: Burning-like pain is neuropathic in nature. There is a compressed nerve present, don't know the cause. A muscle spasm can compress nerves. Need to see your doctor for a definitive diagnosis.

Circulation issue: In DVT. If there is a clot on one side blocking all the veins coming back from all the leg, then all the circulation out from there would be blocked. There would be huge swelling. The test (doppler) is simple, not very expensive, nonpainful and non risky. Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, it wouldn't likely be done.

What does a burning sensation in my thighs mean?

What does a burning sensation in my thighs mean?

Burning thighs: This usually means that a subcutaneous nerve is being compressed. One common example is a condition called meralgia paresthetic, which usually affects from the anterior lower lateral abdomen down to the thigh and/or groin. Other causes would include chemical burns (from topical medications or otc products) or sunburn.

My right thigh woke up with this underskin burning sensation it feels it moves around from side thigh move to front up thigh. Any idea?

My right thigh woke up with this underskin burning sensation it feels it moves around from side thigh move to front up thigh. Any idea?

Neuralgia: Nerve pain can take many forms, with burning or stabbing being common. A pain in the anterior and lateral thigh may be due to meralgia paresthetica, which simply is a painful syndrome of the nerve serving that area. Other possibilities are a pinched nerve in the back. Rarely, diseases such as lyme or cancer, or trauma can affect these nerves.

I have a burning sensation in the back of thigh, aggravates when skin comes in contact with something or while sitting; sort of shifting burning.

Contact Dermatitis?: It is very difficult to tell what this might be without seeing it. I have seen people who are allergic to nickel metal and who have contracted this itchy skin condition by sitting on metal or cast-iron benches. One lady worked in an outdoor furniture shop recurrently had this dermatitis. In short, it's very essential to see a dermatologist to have proper assessment of this problem.
