Getting sharp muscle cramp in thigh and groin area.  Started this morning and cannot seam to get it to go away.  Tried stretching and walking.  Keeps coming back and making it hard to walk.

The groin has a lot: The groin has a lot of structures. The illiopsoas can sometimes get tight and cause difficulty with walking. There are other muscles in the area also that may be inflammed due to proximity of the bowel and the ureter. If it does not resolve quickly or gets worse, go and see a doctor so that you can be examined and labwork ordered. ...Read more

Swollen nodes in groin area, stomach cramps and loose stool for a week. Last night had an episode of vomiting. Unprotected sex 2 wks Ago. HIV?

Unlikely. Get tested: Acute HIV seroconversion occurs "several " weeks after infection. Two weeks is a little early, but not impossible. I doubt HIV infection from unprotected sex two weeks earlier since these symptoms are not the typical symptoms of acute HIV seroconversion infection.
The way to exclude it with complete certainty is to measure HIV viral load by PCR. Antibody tests are usually negative. ...Read more

I work a 32-hour weekend and on sunday nights after I'm in bed relaxing I get cramps from toes to groin bilaterally and huge bulges in my calves?

Overuse Syndrome: If the cramps occur in the calves and hamstring muscle groups, the cause of the cramps could be overuse of the muscles during standing and walking.
I would suggest that you make an appt with a podiatirst certified in podiatric medicine. A biomechanical exam, muscle testing, gait exam and x-ray's would probably be necessary. ...Read more

What can I do for severe leg cramps (from my groin down and around my upper legs) due to over doing it at the gym?

It is caused by damage to the muscle fibers which your body is trying to repair. The pain should resolve within a few days. Ways of helping with the pain include nsaids (such as ibuprofen), ice, heat, massage, and various linaments (such as icyhot), but do not quick and healing. ...Read more

22wks pregnant. Had myomectomy 8mnths back. I always feel mild cramps in my abdomen. Some groin pain as well. So always tuk rest. Did scan, normal. Is this ok?

Likely: Your doctor who is taking care of you and performed your scan is the best to tell you if everything is normal. That was definitely a short time between having a myomectomy and getting pregnant. Most doctors recommend 18 months between surgery and getting pregnant, assuming the surgery went through your uterine layers of muscle. Tell your doctor about your pain. ...Read more

I'm having severe cramps in my lower abs. Right above my groin the pain set on suddenly at the end of my bowel movement it is sharp and coming in wave?

Rule out hernia: The biggest concern that I'd have is for any kind of hernia present. If the pain intensifies, there is a mass/bulge in your groin abdomen, nausea/vomiting, or inability to have a bowel movement then I would go to an emergency room for evaluation. If the pain subsides, I would still be seen by your physician. ...Read more
