I have a sharp pain from my right knee shooting up to my groin feels like knee is popping as well that comes and goes. Should I seek attention?

Yes: You may benefit from seeing an osteopathic physician for consult. S/he can do a full osteopathic examination, and do a musculoskeletal examination of your knees and lower extremities are doing, and how stable your knee is in relation to your hips, pelvis, and lower back. The problem may be affecting your knees secondarily from somewhere else. Time to get relief, and get treated. ...Read more

Stress fx, labral: You are having pain with hip flexion. A labral tear, iliopsoas tendinitis and bursitis, an articulate cartilage defect or a stress fracture are all considerations. You'll need to see a physician for an exam. X-rays are a good start but an MRI may be necessary to fully detect the problem. Rest from running and high impact activities for now. ...Read more

Behind knee (burning)and calf (dull/sharp) pain that's been getting worse over the last 3weeks. X-ray normal ultrasound knee to groin normal. No injur?

Knee: I think you should see your physician and ask an ultrasound. There csn still be other soft tissue pathology that does not show up on x ray like a Bakers cyst. Sounds like there is something pinching some nerves back there. ...Read more

Female. Sharp pain in upper right groin abt 2-3 inches above leg crease. Comes and goes quickly. Hurts for 2 seconds then gone.

Need more info: Is it random or is there something you do that faithfully will cause the pain? Bend? Cough? Is the area tender to the touch? Can you put your finger right on the spot and cause increased pain? Or is it an internal pain that is difficult to localize. Does it feel like a muscle ache? And electric shock? A burning? Is there a lump in the area? Any other symptoms? Nausea? Gi cramps? Any recent trauma. ...Read more

Sharp pain in right side crease area where thigh meets groin. Loss of full range of motion-can't move leg up to put socks on. Pain for months now.

Groin pain: The commonest cause of lingering groin discomfort is strain or injury of the inguinal ligament which takes many months to heal. Do you recall any strain of the groin area in the past? Occasionally pain in the groin is referred from a hip joint problem. I recommend an examination by a general surgeon to check for hernia or evidence of ligament or hip pathology. ...Read more

I was doing the hamstring leg curl exercise when suddenly I felt a sharp pain near my groin area. It almost felt like testicular pain. Is it sciatica?

I was doing the hamstring leg curl exercise when suddenly I felt a sharp pain near my groin area. It almost felt like testicular pain. Is it sciatica?

More like Groinatica: You likely stretched your inguinal ligament OR you may have stretched one of your upper lumbar nerves which can shoot pain into that area due to the way you were doing the exercise. You may need REST & to back off of the weights. Go LIGHT coming back (real light), ramp up to heavier weights slowly to avoid the same injury. Time to consolidate something like this can be SEVERAL WEEKS or longer.. ...Read more

Varies: There are multiple potential causes, I would not hesitate to be seen. In the field of orthopedics, one of the most common causes of groin pain is a problem with the hip itself. This can be from an early arthritic condition or something like a Labral tear. This would go along with the description of reproduction of pain when you lift your leg and also the stiffness you describe. ...Read more

My knee gives me sharp pain every time I bend my knees, would it be a torn ligament? Thanks

My knee gives me sharp pain every time I bend my knees, would it be a torn ligament? Thanks

Unlikely: A torn ligament is a serious injury which typically occurs only with significant trauma such as a ski accident or sports injury. A torn ligament will typically result in instability of the knee. So, if you have not had any significant trauma then it is unlikely to be a torn ligament. See a physician if your symptoms persist. ...Read more
