Severe pain starting in back on right side shooting to abdomin & groin. Bad enough to cause nausea. ER found nothing wrong with kidney or appendix.?

Symptoms vs. Reality: Symptoms=interpretations by person who perceives them (within their brain?mind) & only clues as to what is possibly happening. Better diagnoses (just labels, not necessarily accurate/useful for solutions) also require signs (exam, lab findings, etc.) & time in order to offer reasonable guesses to what might be happening. Medicine not magical; physicians=only detectives. ER bad place for good help. ...Read more

Can you tell me reasons why i always have constant groin pain?

Can you tell me reasons why i always have constant groin pain?

Joint or tendon: In a 32-year old if it is not a genitourinary issue it could be musculoskeletal. Deep in the joint it could be a torn labrum. It can also be a tendonitis of the hip flexor or adductor muscles. Physical exam and clinical information would help to decipher the source. In a male an inguinal hernia would need to be ruled out. Sports hernias are also common source of groin pain. ...Read more

Intermittent groin pain for 17 months. Ultrascan in feb to rule out tc, showed nothing. Still aches from time to time. Could scan be wrong?

Unlikely: If the ultrasound was negative, there is unlikely to be testicular cancer present. Other things that might cause groin pain include hernias, varicocele (which can also be identified on sono), intermittent testicular torsion, and infections of the scrotal contents. If the problem is persistent, a ct of the abdomen may be suggested to rule out abdominal pathology. ...Read more

How can I tell if I have a hernia or groin sprain?

How can I tell if I have a hernia or groin sprain?

Bulge: Both groin hernias and muscle strains can cause groin pain (although the strain usually hurts more) and may be difficult to distinguish. However, groin strains will not cause a bulge in the groin, whereas hernias do. The bulge tends to protrude with exertion and recede when laying down. If in doubt, I recommend that you see a general surgeon. ...Read more

Can you tell me how long before I can exercise after a pulled groin muscle?

Can you tell me how long before I can exercise after a pulled groin muscle?

Hard to say without: Knowing more specifics as in how severe the "pull" was. But in general even for mild strains, resting for 2 weeks isn't unreasonable with a graded(slow increase) reintroduction into exercise after that. Listen to your body, if you're not a professional athlete, "no pain, no gain" really doesn't apply to you. If it hurts, decrease the intensity or just avoid it all together and retry later. ...Read more

Blood in urine, high bp, changes in urination may be other signs. Urinalysis, blood test, imaging helpful. ...Read more

How do I tell someone I have PGAD I'm too scared and embarrassed. I might get exploratory groin surgery but the doctors don't know I have this I'm 21

PGAD: I understand that this is embarrassing but it is really important to advise your doctor of this or any other conditions you have that involve your genitalia — before you have surgery. Recommend that you make your health the priority — which means getting up the courage to talk about this candidly to your medical team. Take care. ...Read more

How can I tell whether I have osteitis pubis or a pulled groin?

Osteitis pubis: Osteitis pubis is a central ache directly over the junction of the pubic bones. It can be very difficult to distinguish this from a groin pull as the groin muscles attach on the pubic bone. Stress fractures can also mimic osteitis pubis. These are seen more commonly in runners. Diagnostic injection into the region may help. Mri is also very sensitive in helping determine the source of pain. ...Read more

How can you tell if your lymph nodes are abnormally enlarged in your neck, armpits or groin?

How can you tell if your lymph nodes are abnormally enlarged in your neck, armpits or groin?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Can someone tell me how long will my groin strain take to heal?

Simple Treatment: A sprain/strain is when a ligament/tendon is injured by overstretching. There may be minimal or quite a bit of damage to it.

Ice massage (24-36 hours), elevation, gentle rom, motrin/advil are the keys to maximize healing. ...Read more

What could be wrong if my left hip pain for close to three years now. Pain feels deep in socket with groin pain as well?

Would seek help.: Had and medical evaluation yet? Hip pain could be from the hip joint itself or from the low back. I would thus seek help from a specialist in this regard on the assumption that you have sought help from your pcp, had imaging studies and perhaps pt as well. 3 years is long enough time and specialized consultation is warranted at this time if this has not occurred already. Be well. ...Read more
