@mari hi mari I have groin pain but mine is due to my back do you have anything back problems?If ice doesn't help it and rest which is my experience I would go to your P.C.P they can advice you .Linda
No Linda, not my back. I was shoveling dirt and reaching to put dirt onto base of orange tree. Pain was not sudden but, day 2 and 3 have been extrodinally PAINFUL. Will get walker or cane and see Dr. today. Only Oxy can help this pain. Dyclofinac does not help.
@mari glad your going to Dr hope its not to bad let me know
wound up in hospital, will b discharged now. so stayed for 1 day. nothing broken – probably sprain – pain with slight Wrong move is 10. if I'm not doing something than no pain.
Has anyone experienced this severe pain with Every movement in groin? After X-ray and Cat scan – told I don't need MRI. But, only OXy given, 1 darn week at a time. Oxy makes it a little tolerable. Told to go home nd rest, like I have a choice ? Any Ideas?

@mari Lioness here I was told by Dr my groin burning pain is coming from my lower back that is pinching the nerves I have found that ice helps
Interesting cause PT that will start home health Care soon, said the same thing. What did u do for it besides ice? Any PT?
@mari I do alot of stretching lay the n your back and do this I use cbd cream on lower back ,then ice on groin I,ve also used my chiropractor he uses a Tens unit and ice on top leaves on 15 min.then adjust lower back I get relief this way also.
I've been getting groin pain – at least I think it's groin pain. In "searching" I found the bone from the pubic area to the leg ?????? is very tender. Is that considered "groin"???? I have it from trouble getting up from a chair because of my bad legs.
Could you have strained the area?
It is VERY easy to do.
Walking, stretching, sqeezing on the toilet (sorry), walking, turning when asleep. Etc.
Try an ice pack for a few days and consciously stretch before getting out of bed and before getting up if you have been sitting too long.
If these things don't help after a reasonable amount of time, I suggest that you go to the doctor.
I am not a medical professional.
That's exactly what I did as I have difficult getting out of a chair due to knee problems. I will try that stretching similar to what I do when I get up from my desk. Thanks so much for the info.
I'll try to CBD cream along with stretching before I get up. Thanks.
