Constipated for a week strain really hard to pass bowels I have right side groin & hip pain. Can my constipation be related to my gallstones?

No: Constipation is not related to gallstones. The pain in your groin may be a hernia due to the strain placed on the abdominal wall with bowel movements. Hernias are associated with a bulge in the groin. You should make sure to drink a lot of water, eat fiber and if needed take a stool softener such as colace. You may have to take something stronger like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) to help you have a bowel movement. ...Read more

No.: Statin pain is statin myaglia, not pain in the joint. But then, "hip" pain is not where most people think, ie. In the groin, and down the anterolateral side of the thigh to above the knee. Buttock pain may be muscular, and this could be statin myalgia. But statins do not cause arthritis! ...Read more
